About project

On July 24, 2019, the American University of Armenia and RA Ministry of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure (MTAI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to implement a pilot project on creating a database and map of waste generation and handling in all Marzes of Armenia excluding Yerevan municipality.

Specifically, the database will include geographic information on waste generation points and dumpsites. In effect, this pilot will produce a registry of existing dumpsites with their characteristics (including existing dumpsites as points or polygons, if provided by respondents). This pilot will also enable to build capacity for more efficient and optimized management and quality assurance for waste governance projects and assignments implemented by MTAI.
