An urban forest will be established in the northern parts of Yerevan, which will aim to ensure Yerevan from floods. In cooperation with the neighboring regions, Yerevan will be surrounded with densely greened zones. Getar and Hrazdan riverbeds will be cleaned from household wastes and their riverbeds will be comprehensively cleaned. The flow of sewage into the rivers will be excluded. We will establish a new and contemporary landfill site in line with the EU standards. The landfill will have a station for the collection of poisonous gases and a combustion station and a generator will be established to generate electricity from biogas.'

The irrigation network of green zones will be expanded. The Station for sewage cleaning will be reconstructed.'
