Press Conference At EcoLur; Why SHPPs Need "Green Passports"?


12:18 February 04, 2015


Why do SHPPs need ‘green’ passports? Whether the situation with
SHPPs will change and who will change it? What kind of problems in
SHPP will the public and Nature Protection will raise? Whether the
environmentalists will reach an agreement with the business?

EcoLur Press Club (49 Hanrapetutyan st.) will host a press conference
at 12:00 on 5 February to get answers to these and other questions.

The speakers are the coordinators of “Support to SHPP-relating reforms
through the dialogue of public and RA Nature Protection Ministry
for Sustainable Use of River Ecosystems” – Ashot Avalyan – Deputy
Staff Head of Nature Protection Ministry, Inga Zarafyan – President
“EcoLur” Informational NGO and Davit Grigoryan – Head of Water Permit
Department of Nature Protection Ministry.

The project is implemented by “EcoLur” Informational NGO in the
partnership with Nature Protection Ministry with the financial support
of the UNDP GEF.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
