Armenia and the environment: The challenges of ecological integrity in a developing republic

Armenia has its share of environmental problems, including a nuclear power plant subject to contradicting assessments, polluted rivers, reservoirs on the verge of collapse, and the destruction of green zones as a result of infrastructure development.

Armenia has its share of environmental problems, including a nuclear power plant subject to contradicting assessments, polluted rivers, reservoirs on the verge of collapse, and the destruction of green zones as a result of infrastructure development.  

A group of twelve Armenian and foreign journalists that participated in the workshop “Coverage of Environmental Issues” in May investigated some of these problems and wrote articles highlighting the quality of drinking water, the state of Yerevan green zones, and the Metsamor Nuclear Power Plant.  Their findings were published in Armenia Now, an Armenian online newspaper.

The weeklong workshop was organized by the Caucasus Media Institute, the US Embassy in Armenia, GRID-Arendal, and The Guardian.  It was facilitated by Paul Brown (The Guardian), Kieran Cooke (The Financial Times) and John Bennett (Bennett & Associates).
