Promoting Protected Areas Ecotourism in ITB 2014
The project was initiated and implemented by Transboundary Joint Secretariat (TJS) and funded by German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through KfW Development Bank. The project was also supported by WWF and CNF. In the framework of this project a brochure for Protected Areas of Armenia had been published in German and English languages and around 700 copies (350 English and 350 German) were distributed during the fair. A promotional film was also created and presented on the TV screen of the Armenia’s stand.
On March 05 in the framework of the fair Gera Voskanyan, the Partnership and Communications Manager of WWF-Armenia, made a presentation covering general information on Armenia’s protected areas with a specific focus on tourism opportunities of these areas.
