Forest resilience of Armenia, enhancing adaptation and rural green growth via mitigation
Armenia is one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change in the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region. Its forests are highly sensitive to climate change, while its rural population is dependent on fuelwood to meet their energy demands.
By focusing on the forest-energy nexus, the project will target adaptation and mitigation measures in two of the country's administrative areas most vulnerable to climate change in Lori and Syunik. This GCF project is the country’s first forestry-oriented funding proposal. It will increase the role of communities governing and managing natural resources through forest concessions and improved fuelwood management, timber production and non-timber forest products. This is a relatively new approach in Armenia, and has the potential to act as a model for the entire country. The project will include an increase in the use of energy-efficient appliances in the private sector and rural households to decrease pressure on natural ecosystems.
