Armenia is the second country to become a GBIF Participant after taking part in the Norwegian-funded BioDATA project, implemented nationally by International Research Programme Coordinating Unit of the Armenian National Agrarian University (ANAU). This allows successfully to participate in the CESP programme, that has funded by GBIF in 2021. Read more about the CESP2021-010 project here
