Democratic Governance

  • Rapid regulatory reform of government services (The Guillotine)

    Many regulations in Armenia have been upgraded over the years, and there is consensus that many of them meet international best practices. Yet, un-reviewed and un-modernized regulations impede investment and overall development.

  • Youth Studies Center

    UNDP assistance is focused on supporting the establishment of the Youth Studies Center and promoting evidence-based approach to research, policy formulation and implementation.

  • Women in local democracy

    Since its independence in 1991, Armenia has ratified over 50 Conventions and other international legal instruments reaffirming its commitment, among others, to equality between women and men, including equal representation of women in decision-making processes. Policy changes, however, are slow to translate into the day-to-day experiences of most Armenian citizens. Consequently, the level of women’s representation and meaningful participation in governance and decision-making continues to be low.

  • European Union Advisory Group to the Republic of Armenia

    The European Union Advisory Group will assist Armenian authorities in the preparation to negotiate, conclude and implement the Association Agreement, including the free trade agreement.

  • Enhancement of Border Management Capacities of Bavra-Ninotsminda BCPs between Armenia and Georgia

    UNDP supports in introducing the European standards of Integrated Border Management at the Bavra-Ninotsminda Border Crossing Point on the Armenia-Georgia border with the ultimate goal to facilitate trade and transit and enhance the movement of people across the border.

  • Modernization of Bagratashen, Bavra, Gogavan Border Crossing Points of the Republic of Armenia

    UNDP’s role as an implementing partner is to assist the Government of Armenia in modernisation of Bagratashen, Bavra and Gogavan border crossing points (BCPs) of Armenia for aligning them to the IBM international standards aimed at the facilitation of the movement of people and goods across the border.


UNDP is currently implementing a number of innovative projects, such as providing high-level policy advice to Armenian authorities in areas such as human rights and democracy, justice, liberty and security and free trade in the frame of Armenia’s EU integration policy; modernizing three Armenian-Georgian border crossing points (together with the European Union and the National Security Council), which implies also enhanced accountability, transparency and integrity of border agencies to facilitate trade and transit and instil public confidence.
