Germany will provide Armenia a grant of 1.5 million euros to study  the situation around Lake Sevan

ArmInfo.The German Ministry  of Education and Science will provide Armenia with a grant of 1.5  million euros to study the situation around Lake Sevan. Minister of  Environment of the Republic of Armenia Erik Grigoryan announced this  on October 29 at a hearing in parliamentary commissions on the draft  state budget of the Republic of Armenia.

According to him, these funds will be transferred to one of the  reputable German institutions, which will carry out this work. The  Minister emphasized that according to the previously developed  strategy, by 2030 it is planned to raise the level of Lake Sevan to  1903 meters, which will make it possible to qualitatively change the  situation. However, the increase in wastewater volumes and climate  change forced the country's authorities to return to this issue  again, which German and Armenian experts will do. This year, as Erik  Grigoryan emphasized, the lake level turned out to be 5 cm higher  than last year. This, in many respects, was achieved due to a  decrease in the planned volumes of water releases. The main task of  the ministry is not only to increase the level of the lake, but also  to reduce the volume of wastewater entering it. In 2020, in  particular, the volume of budget financing for cleaning coastal areas  and the installation of new treatment plants in three regions will  triple.
