General

The goal of the first phase of the project is to make sustainable the use of the scarce resource water along the Akhouryan River, taking into account various competing interests. Consistent water availability (even in dry years), because of the new water storage system and its integration into a coordinated water management plan, should reduce the vulnerability of the target group and ecosystems to the effects of climate change. In addition, by addressing the needs of surrounding ecosystems (Lake Arpi National Park, Wetlands, River Ecology), management plans will contribute to the conservation and biodiversity in the region. Finally yet importantly, the rehabilitation and completion of the existing rudimentary dam reduces the risk of dam failure.
