UNDP has therefore been requested by the Government of Armenia to provide mine-action related support, aiming to increase safety and security for women, men and children in the communities affected by the EO contamination and strengthening national mine action structures to address the EO contamination in compliance with International Mine Action Standards (IMAS).
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. UNDP helps countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results. UNDP in Armenia was established in March 1993, and supports the government in meeting its development priorities and the Sustainable Development Goals. UNDP has been working to accelerate the development of Armenia. It works at the upstream policy level, advising on legal and policy frameworks, and implements downstream initiatives, turning projects into policies and policies into actions. UNDP also has enormous reach across the country - in rural and urban areas and amongst a growing network of youth, innovators, and social entrepreneurs.
