Norway Gives $1.2 Million to Armenia Reforestation Project

Date : 15th March 2012, Source : ENS



YEREVAN, Armenia, March 15, 2012 (ENS) - The Armenia Tree Project's 18-year-long effort to reforest the Caucasus country with tree planting, environmental education, and sustainable development was rewarded this week with a $1.2 million grant from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Since 1994, the nonprofit organization, which is based both in Yarevan and Massachusetts, has worked to combat desertification in the biologically diverse but imperiled Caucasus region. Over 3,500,000 trees have been planted and restored and hundreds of jobs have been created for Armenians in seasonal tree-regeneration programs.
