Implementing in Armenia the EU Financed Regional Project on Increasing the Resilience of Forest Ecosystems
The Memorandum was signed in the premises of Head Office of “Hayantar” SNCO under the auspices of the EU financed regional project "Increasing the Resilience of Forest Ecosystems against Climate Change in the Southern Caucasus through Forest Transformation" (DCI-ENV/2010/221391) implemented by WWF, and aimed to increase resilience of monoculture forest stands against climate change. The addendum to MoU of December 2011 was signed in May 2012, where some changes in the maps of selected pilot areas were agreed and approved (Annex 1). The overall objective of the project is to mitigate climate change impacts and to improve biodiversity and livelihoods of local populations.
