We are very happy to welcome the Union of Communities of Armenia (UCA) as a new collective member of Energy Cities. The Union, established in 1997, represents the unified voice of the local self-governmental (LSG) bodies of Armenia and gathers all the municipalities of the Country.
The main objectives of UCA are to strengthen local democracy in Armenia, advocate the interests of local self-governmental bodies (LSG), implement the “European Charter of Local Self-Government” in Armenia and ensure the provision of development of local self-governmental system, capacities of the municipalities as well as provision of exchange of local best practices.
During the last 20 years UCA became one of the important Armenian institutions and achieved international recognition. The Union implemented a number of projects concerning the advocacy of the interests of LSG bodies in the area of cooperation between LSG bodies and Government of the Republic of Armenia, LSG bodies and international organizations as well as projects directed to the economic development of LSG bodies including the Energy Efficiency sector.
UCA is also the supporter of several European initiatives in Armenia such as the European Local Democracy Week, the Covenant of Mayors, … and now the first Energy Cities’ member in Armenia ! Welcome !
