Forty-three Armenian cultural sites will become part of the Black
Sea Silk Road Corridor (BSSRC) Project.

The Black Sea Silk Road Corridor (BSSRC) Project is a 24-month project
that will foster cross-border cooperation and economic development
in 173 communities across four countries of the Black Sea Basin -
Armenia, Georgia, Greece and Turkey.

In Armenia the project is funded by the EU Black Sea Cross Border
Cooperation framework, USAID through its EDMC Project, and the Armenian
Monuments Awareness Project, as the lead implementer.

The Project is expected to alleviate rural isolation and develop local
communities through eco-friendly tourism to both enhance visitor's
experiences and protect cultural monuments and biodiversity.
