Gyumri Green City Action Plan

Gyumri Green City Action Plan (GCAP)

2000 homeless families, 50 % unemployment rate, migrating young people – one of the vulnerable regions of Armenia, City of Gyumri has many social and economic difficulties that are urgently in need to be solved. The city has taken the sustainability path involving ecological challenges in the agenda and joining to Green City Network by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The goal of the Green City Action Plan vision is to make Gyumri’s environment healthier and more liveable for its citizens by improving air quality, water resource, and land use, preserving ecosystems, and implementing climate change mitigation and adaptation measures while enabling economic and technological growth.

The Distrikt is joining to transfer this vision into action. 

The Distrikt is willing to join Gyumri Municipality to realize Gyumri’s Environmental 2035 vision as we have a clear motivation to improve our home and host city. We are suggesting a direct contribution to these actions that require huge financial and human resources to implement. Discover each action and what our contribution can be.

Walking and Cycling

Gyumri’s relatively high topography creates favorable conditions for active transportation use as walking and cycling. A mobility network that prioritizes active transportation creates safer streets for all users, is cheap and clean, promotes a healthy lifestyle, and fosters a sense of community by creating living streets. One of the primary challenges in Gyumri is the absence of relevant infrastructure –  biking trails and signage; pedestrian-only zones and green spaces.
