Olimpia Geghamyan, Director of the Scientific-Educational Center for Environmental Law at YSU Faculty of Law, hosted Marianna Bolshakova, a representative of the UN European Economic Commission's international team of experts, and discussed with her the problems of ecological education and upbringing in Armenia.

The Government of the Republic of Armenia has applied to the UN Commission on Environmental Performance Assessment in Armenia.

To this end, a team of international experts arrived in Armenia on March 15-22 to hold meetings with government officials, civil society, national experts and business representatives.

The experts aim to improve Armenia's environmental performance by assessing developments over the past decade in air quality, water management, biodiversity, specially protected areas, soil conservation, waste, chemicals management and the "green" economy.

Marianna Bolshakova praised the results of the meeting with Geghamyan and noted that the expert team of the UN Economic Commission for Europe will take into account the recommendations of the Director of the Environmental Law Scientific-Educational Center of YSU Faculty of Law when compiling the package of proposals.
