New project: Democratic Development, Decentralisation and Good Governance in Armenia
This ambitious and comprehensive project, developed in the context of the Council of Europe Action Plan for Armenia 2019-2022, is financed by Austrian Development Agency. At an exciting time for the Republic of Armenia, the project aims at supporting democratic consolidation by contributing to the development of effective, accountable and transparent local government bodies, promoting good governance principles, and fostering inclusive participation and equal opportunities for women in political decision-making across mutually reinforcing lines of action.
The specific objectives of the Project are to strengthen the legal framework for local democracy in Armenia based on European standards; develop the capacities of local institutions and officials; promote local ownership and sustainable outcomes; and promote respect for principles of good governance and public administration.
The project will promote the standards of the CDDG and implement several toolkits of the Centre of Expertise, including Civil Participation, Public Ethics, Inter-Municipal Cooperation, and adapt the e-learning tool on Good Governance to the Armenian context.
