This 30-month EU-funded activity aims to address communities’ capacity gaps and foster local development in a sustainable, participatory, and accountable manner. 

EU Ambassador Świtalski highlighted the importance of promoting healthy lifestyles in Armenian communities and developing tourism: “Our project does not have a big budget, which means that modest investment can and will have to make big changes in remote communities. This is one of 10 projects in remote communities in Armenia. In the future we plan to have a number of similar projects. The European Union plans to invest another €7 million in the development of tourism in the northern regions of Armenia”.
