At a Glance
The Europe and Eurasia Regional Mission serves Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Moldova, North Macedonia, and Serbia.
Armenia is a small landlocked country with a history of significant land degradation and active desertification processes. Frequent landslides, mudflows, and other natural hazards in areas with heavy rainfall threaten vital infrastructure and buildings. Higher temperatures will reduce the country's snow cover, reducing runoff and further limiting water supply. This has implications for Armenia's agriculture sector, which supports the country's rural livelihoods and key cereal crops. Rising temperatures will also negatively impact Armenia's unique ecosystems and biodiversity, as well as introduce and exacerbate threats to human health such as malaria and heat stress. Armenia's greenhouse gas emissions are dominated by fuel combustion, transportation, and electricity in the energy sector.
