Summary: A Feasibility Study has been performed to assess the Air Quality Management (AQM) situation in Armenia for the purpose of potentially preparing a future comprehensive project proposal for establishing an Air Quality Management Program (AQMP) for the country. The study was conducted in cooperation with local Armenian Environmental authorities (primarily the Environmental Impact Monitoring Centre - EIMC) to evaluate the existing local monitoring network and collaborating institutions, in addition to performing a screening study in Yerevan based on passive samplers. Results from the study indicate that Armenia needs technical support and training in order to establish a comprehensive AQMP. Recommendations, including a detailed roadmap, are presented as suggestions for the framework of a future proposal to establish a successful AQMP in Armenia.
