The UNDP-GEF “Generate global environmental benefits through environmental education and raising awareness of stakeholders” project aims to address priority capacity needs related to the environmental literacy of key stakeholders, such as the need to increase skills and knowledge of staff in organizations involved in implementing environmental management practices; the need to increase consideration of environmental obligations in various social-economic development programmes; and the need to increase awareness of decision-makers on global environmental issues and country’s obligations under the Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEA) that Armenia is Party to.
The objective of the project is to strengthen the capacity to use Environmental Education (EE) and awareness raising as tools to address natural resource management issues. It will, on one hand, increase the public knowledge on the environment and the need to protect nature, and, on the other hand, transfer the required knowledge to the targeted beneficiaries to allow them to be development actors without harming the environment.
One of the expected outputs of the Project is to mainstream environmental education into national strategies, programmes and projects, providing Armenia with an effective development apparatus that includes environmental education as a tool to raise public awareness on global and national environmental issues and solutions to be implemented at the national and local levels. The development of strategy for EE is an opportunity to strengthen the overall strategic vision of the environmental education sector, as well as to develop environmental education programmes and sustainable delivery mechanisms targeting not only traditional Educational sectors, but also public sector employees and educators in Armenia.
Development of EE strategy is among the priorities for the RoA Government Plan of Action for 2017, approved by the RoA Decree 122-N of 12 January 2017. In order to complement this Plan of Action the Project will support the development of strategy on EE by the RoA Ministry of Nature Protection.
