Environmental Protection of Lake Sevan - EU4Sevan
Lake Sevan is the largest freshwater lake in the Caucasus Region and is the most significant source of fresh water, irrigation water, aquaculture, as well as hydropower source in Armenia. Its condition has a direct bearing on the region’s environmental health and Armenia’s economic potential.
With support from the EU Water Initiative (EUWI) Plus, the Armenian Government has been developing the first River Basin Management Plan for the Lake Sevan basin, aimed at structuring and improving the management of water re-sources at the basin level in the long term.
EU4SEVAN will build on existing achievements and plans and will complement and support interventions that contribute to enhance the environmental protection of Lake Sevan (outcome).
