RIO + 20

Last month, the entire world concentrated its attention on Rio de Janeiro for the UN’s Conference on Sustainable Development. CNF's National Coordinator in Armenia, Arman Vermisyan, joined the Armenian Delegation.

The Armenian Government, along with UNDP and Yale University held a side event to update the existing set of Sustainable Development indicators and to present the country’s approaches, experience and recent achievements on the SD index.

The meeting brought together representatives from several countries, international organizations and scientific circles.

Our team is growing!
 
Now in our fourth year in operation—supporting nine parks in the region, over 400,000 hectares—we are deligted to announce the addition of two national coordinators to our team.

Arman Vermisyan joins CNF as National Coordinator in Armenia. He holds a Masters degree in environmental economics and has over 10 years of experience working in Armenia's environmental sector, including projects for UNDP, USAID, ADB and local private companies and NGOs.

Tea Barbakadze joins us as National Coordinator in Georgia. She received her degree in biology from Tbilisi State University and has over 6 years experience working in Georgia’s protected area network with the Agency of Protected Areas.

As in-country coordinators, Arman based in Yerevan and Tea based in Tbilisi, will oversee CNF's projects, manage and conduct park audits and build relationships with local businesses, NGOs and agencies to ensure that CNF's support is coordinated and sustainable.



Help Save the Region's World Class Biodiversity!

The high mountains, deep forests, and semi-deserts of the South Caucasus boast more biodiversity per hectare than any temperate climate zone in the world. Protected areas are crucial to conservation efforts, which is why CNF is focusing its efforts on ensuring the future of 15 of the largest parks in the South Caucasus.

Help us reach this goal by contributing to CNF. Your gift will protect the unparalleled landscapes and biodiversity of the Caucasus for future generations.
