Our approach

Vision: To have a prosperous economy which emphasizes environmental protection and sustainable development

Mission: To protect and restore Armenia’s forests for current and future generations

In order to stop the destruction of Armenia’s forests, we need to address the underlying causes which include demand for cheap fuel, the lack of affordable alternative energy, the greed of a few, corruption, as well as inadequate policies and lack of enforcement.
