The river courses in Armenia have decreased: the main reasons are water overexploitation and climate change. On 16 November the Armenian Government adopted its resolution 'RA Water Balance Determination Method Per River Basins' to improve the management of water resources. 'Formation of water balance has an important significance for the sustainable management of the water resources in the river basin, as well as is one of the most important steps in river-basin planning. Particularly, this will enable setting realistic goals of river-basin planning through water usage permits based on the received information,' the resolution rationale says.
