Flag of Armenia


The oldest Christian nation in the world faces great challenges.
According to the 2021/2022 Human Development Report, around three million people live in the Caucasian country, 90 % of whom belong to the Armenian Apostolic Church. The population of the presidential republic, which has been independent since 1991, is still suffering from the consequences of the 1988 earthquake and the unresolved conflict with Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Poverty and a high unemployment rate of 15 % according to the International Monetary Fund are the result. Industry is poorly developed in Armenia. Livestock and agriculture are widespread. Depending on the region, the country has both a dry climate with temperatures of up to +45 °C and lows of up to -40 °C.
