Due to global warming water resources will decrease by 6-8% by 2030. At present Main environmental problem in Armenia is Lake Sevan ecosystem recovery. According to Papyan, Sevan has not only environmental significance for Armenia, but also state security significance. “In 2010 Lake Sevan level will increase by more than cm. Now we are trying to solve the problems with water quality through constructing cleaning stations. Let’s remember the early 90’s when Sevan gave us both electricity, and irrigation system and food,” said Deputy Nature Protection Minister Simon Papyan.
