The Installation of Anti-hail Nets as One of DRR National Platform’s Activity Spheres. Since 2012, the Foundation has partnered with a number of Ministries (Ministry of Emergency Situations, Ministry of Agriculture), international and local organizations (UNDP, World Vision, CARD Foundation, etc.), to promote the development of anti-hail nets usage culture in Armenia.
The first steps in this field were taken by the United Nations Development Program with the support of World Vision, RA Ministry of Emergency Situations and ARNAP Foundation. The process was a pilot aimed at finding out the effectiveness and resistance of the nets in Armenia’s climate conditions.
