Hintergrundinformation


Co-financing of EU-funded project 6553-00/2022.


The aim of the European Union (EU) is to support inclusive, resilient, and sustainable socio-economic growth in Armenia, in particular, through this Action focusing on the Syunik region. Syunik has suffered from the effects of the 2020 Nagorno Karabakh war and the COVID-19 pandemic. In the framework of the Team Europe Initiative (TEI), the EU Delegation is planning rapid investments in rural economic and community-based development. Therefore, this project funded by the EU, co-funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) and implemented by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) will start in early 2023. The Action will be implemented by ADA as part of the Team Europe Initiative “Resilient Syunik”, in line with the ADC Eastern Partnership Framework Strategy 2021-2027 and the EUD Annual Action Plan 2021.
