Armenia established its first National Disaster Observatory: Armenia lies in one of the most seismically active regions of the world and is affected by other types of hazards. With the support of the Global Risk Identification Programme (GRIP), UNDP-Armenia supported the Ministry of Emergency Situations (MoES) in the establishment of a National Disaster Observatory (NDO) as a sustainable institution for the systematic collection, analysis and interpretation of disaster data to support national disaster risk reduction policies and strategies.
