Trainings for representatives of 52 amalgamated communities

On 10-11 and 12-13 July 2018, the Council of Europe Project on Support to Consolidating Local Democracy in Armenia together with the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Development of Armenia organised two two-day training for representatives of 52 amalgamated communities. The training was devoted to strategic planning at local level.

D Gevorgyan, Deputy Minister of MTAD, welcomed the participants and highlighted the importance of the training in the context of current priorities of the Government. In a Q&A session Deputy Minister addressed the questions on strategic municipal planning, local development and local governance reforms in general.

The training was delivered by L Allio, International Expert, and V Shahbazyan, Local Expert. They introduced strategic municipal planning in the context of local self-government reforms, its rationale and nature, main steps and other relevant issues. Practical exercises were performed to help community representatives develop the vision and strategic goals of the communities as well as exchange experiences.

Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the website of the Council of Europe Office in Yerevan.

The Office represents the Secretary General of the Organisation in Armenia. It closely co-operates with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other national authorities supporting the implementation of statutory obligations to the Council of Europe by Armenia. The Office also co-ordinates and implements a number of Projects and Programmes supporting legislative and institutional reforms in Armenia.

A new 2015-2018 Council of Europe Action Plan for Armenia was adopted by the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers on 15 September 2015. It constitutes the strategic framework for the co-operation of the Organisation with the Armenian authorities with a view to promote current reforms in the country. The four main directions of action under the document are: protecting and promoting human rights, ensuring justice, combatting threats to the rule of law, as well as promoting democratic governance.

As part of our continued outreach, the Office is also committed to working closely with NGOs, the media, and the public at large.

I hope that the information and resources available on this website will be helpful to address your questions related to the activities of our Office and the Council of Europe in Armenia.

Thank you.

Natalia Voutova

Head of the Council of Europe Office in Yerevan
