A national workshop was held on the results of the assessment of potential for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture, which is part of Armenia’s long-term low-emissions development strategy. The aim of the workshop was to present the study on “Mitigation Opportunities and Climate Mainstreaming in Agriculture” as part of the EU4Climate project, and to discuss its findings with policy makers and experts’ community.

The government of the Republic of Armenia approved Armenia’s updated 2021-2030 Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) under Paris Agreement. For the development of the document, the Ministry of Environment received support in the frames of EU4Climate project, that is funded by the European Union and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme.

Nationally determined contributions (NDCs) are at the heart of the Paris Agreement and embody efforts by each country towards lowering greenhouse gas emissions, pursuing domestic climate change mitigation and adaptation measures and fostering climate resilience security, and low-carbon, green growth.

The package includes the “EU Green Deal, its Roadmap – Key actions” and its elements illustrated in “11 Factsheets”

Armenia is increasingly seeing the fingerprints of climate change across its mountains and plains. The agricultural sector – which generates 15 percent of national GDP and accounts for 31 percent of employment – is expected to bear the majority of impacts, from desertification to higher temperatures and diminishing water resources. Armenia’s transition to carbon neutrality is at the core of the country’s vision for energy independence, energy security, and low-carbon, green growth.
