The “Rural Economic Development-New Economic Opportunities” program (RED-NEO) is being implemented by CARD with the Armenian Women for Health and Healthy Environment NGO, AM Partners Consulting and Hicks, Burnham and Williams LLC.
RED-NEO program builds upon current and previous projects, initiatives and activities that the government of Armenia, the U.S. government and USAID, and other donor and non-governmental organizations are implementing to address the economic challenges in rural Armenia.
RED-NEO activities promote inclusive, sustainable economic security and economic growth by supporting at least 100 businesses in at least 60 communities. The program accelerates the growth of small- and medium-sized enterprises (including farms and cooperatives) in the regions; facilitates market linkages between producers and buyers; and establishes networks to promote local economic development. It fosters the development of a competitive agriculture sector by improving the performance of rural businesses and cooperatives, and their ability to meet quality standards.
AWHHE conducted Pesticide Evaluation Report and Safe Use Action Plan (PERSUAP) update in 2019. The PERSUAP is an analysis of crops that could be supported, pests of those crops, and an analysis of all possible pesticides registered in 2018 for import and use in Armenia. The PERSUAP will be updated in 2022.
Trainings for PERSUAP will be conducted among 100 farmers. As well, environmental impact assessment of 100 proposals will be conducted.
