Area of activity/subject: Dams’ Failure & Floods

Summary of the project: ALTER project aims to create public private sectors’ partnerships to increase resilience in Armenia. Focus is on areas facing flood risks originating in earthquakes that can cause dams’ failure. The alliances will be founded on transfer of methods, tools, knowhow and experience from Union Civil Protection Mechanism countries to Armenian partners, as well as to the Armenian government and key stakeholders. Synergies with past and existing initiatives in Armenia will be established for long term sustainable results. Increased resilience of selected local communities will be served through raising awareness campaigns, pilot interventions, training activities and small scale exercises.
