Almost 150 kindergartens in the Armenian capital of Yerevan will benefit from improvements to energy efficiency and resilience to earthquakes by 2020, thanks to EU support. Around 30 kindergartens will be fully renovated, while another 118 will benefit from a light renovation including energy efficiency measures.

The improvements will create a much safer and caring environment for approximately 34,500 people, including pupils, teachers and staff members, and will contribute to climate change mitigation and reduce Yerevans municipal budget expenditure for energy services by 1.1 million.

EU4Energy: Energy Charter assists Armenia in improving policymaking process in energy sector

On 13 September, the Energy Charter Secretariat, together with the Ministry of Energy Infrastructures and Natural Resources of the Republic of Armenia and the EU Delegation to Armenia, organised a communication workshop in the Armenian capital of Yerevan. The main goal of the workshop was to develop a code of good practices for stakeholder consultations and inter-ministerial coordination in the energy field. The event was organised as part of the EUs assistance to Armenia through the EU4Energy programme.

In some respects, Armenia has already had some successes in terms of stakeholder participation in the policymaking process. An online digital platform, www.e-draft.am was designed for public commentary on draft policies and has already registered nearly 20,000 members since its creation last year.

However, there is still more that can be done to improve stakeholder consultation in Armenia. For instance, one of the recommendations at the event was for the Ministry of Energy to organise regular sessions with representatives of public institutions, experts, NGOs and the business community. Another recommendation is to include stakeholders in the process of drafting new policies and legislation from scratch. The final outcome of the EU4Energy event will be a proposed code of good practice for stakeholder communication and consultation in Armenias energy sector.

EU supports incorporation of organic agriculture into vocational education and training curriculum in Armenia

On 18 September, the Head of the EU Delegation to Armenia, Ambassador Piotr Świtalski, participated in an event launching a new organic agriculture module on the curriculum of vocational education and training (VET) institutions in the country. A new methodological handbook for teachers and practical handbook for students have also been launched.

The event took place in the framework of the EU-funded Organic Agriculture Support Initiative. The EU believes these courses can boost students career opportunities in the newly emerging yet competitive organic sector, and help ensure Armenia has a large number of highly skilled professionals in sustainable agriculture-related jobs.

Young people are at the heart of the EUs cooperation with its Eastern Partner countries and the EU has been the main donor to reforms of the VET sector in Armenia.
