Armenia to strengthen chemicals and waste management
Recognized as one of the world’s oldest countries, Armenia offers a rich and ancient culture. Situated between Europe and Asia, it hosts an array of diverse landscapes, from lush forests and snow-capped mountain peaks to barren terrain and the densely-populated capital city of Yerevan. Between the longstanding heritage and natural beauty, there is much to see and even more to protect in Armenia.
Understanding this, a robust chemicals and waste management plan is a stated priority of the country’s government. Ratifying the Basel (1999), Rotterdam (2003), Stockholm (2003) conventions and the Minamata Convention in 2017, Armenia has made significant strides to protect environmental and human health over the last decade.CONTINUE READING ON: www.unep.org
