The conclusions of a report on the existing legislative, regulatory and institutional framework for wildfires risk management in Armenia were discussed at a roundtable discussion in Yerevan today.

The event was organized by the OSCE Office in Yerevan and the Armenian Ministry of Emergency Situations in co-operation with the Global Fire Monitoring Centre (GFMC) within the Environment and Security Initiative (ENVSEC) and brings together some 40 representatives from relevant state agencies, civil society and international organizations.

“Wildfires are a threat in Armenia and the wider region and this issue cannot be solved by a single organization or a state agency. It is important to ensure the co-operation and consolidated efforts of state agencies, international and local organizations and the donor community to continuously enhance capacities to prevent and control wildfires,” said William Hanlon, Deputy Head of the OSCE Office in Yerevan.
