Armenia: Blog Action Day

Categories: Central Asia & Caucasus, Armenia, Environment, Governance

Writing on his official blog, the British Ambassador to Armenia, Charles Lonsdale, marks Blog Action Day by writing about Lake Sevan. Situated 1,900 meters above sea level, it is one of the largest high altitude lakes in the world. However, the diplomatic blogger notes, mismanagement and policies during the Soviet era led to a reduction in the water level and moves to raise it to normal levels have also resulted in other problems which still need to be addressed [1].
