More than 32,000 people now have access to clean, safe water thanks to the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Integrated Land and Resources Governance (ILRG) project, according to the Ministry of Environment of Armenia.
For 6 years, ILRG project has supported the Government of the Republic of Armenia to better understand the problems associated with water level loss through science, innovation, and partnership efforts.
The new tools, technologies and data provided by the project help relevant authorities make more targeted and effective decisions.
On September 2, during the closing ceremony of the project, a number of new tools and products were presented, including the Hydrological Atlas of the Ararat Valley with 48 maps of the area.
As a result of the partnership, communities save 13 million cubic meters of groundwater, 1.3 million kilowatts of energy and almost $ 125,000 per year, which can be directed to other priorities.
