The Minister of the Environment of the Republic of Armenia Eric Grigoryan said this at a press conference on June 5. He explained that this initiative will be implemented with funds from the grant budget provided to the Ministry of the Environment in the amount of 5 million euros within the framework of Armenia-European Union cooperation.

The Minister stressed that the implementation of the initiative is foreseen for the current year.
