In a recent visit to Australia, MLRI’s Executive Director has held a number of events aimed at raising awareness of the need for reforming Armenia’s mining sector.
During the events, Mr Meguerditchian discussed the current state of mining in Armenia, the existing poor practices and their collective negative impacts on the environment and the society more broadly.
MLRI’s public engagement events in Australia follow similar community and grassroots-based events held in Armenia and the United States.29 November, 2019
