Donation of Forestry Tools to “Hayantar” SNCO
The project in Armenia is implemented by WWF Armenia and aimed at increasing the resilience of forest stands against climate change. The overall objective of the project is to mitigate climate change impacts and to improve biodiversity and livelihoods of local populations. Two pilot sites with total area of 150 ha located in Gugarq and Noyemberyan Forest Enterprises of “Hayantar” SNCO (respectively Lori and Tavush Regions of Armenia) will be transformed into more resilient and “close to nature” forests. The fencing of pilot sites was finalized. Forest transformation activities were started in autumn 2012 and will be finalized in spring 2014.
