Expert: Armenia faces desertification risk
“Armenia’s agriculture is in poor condition. The Ministry of Agriculture says that everything is ok, agriculture develops, villages improve, villagers live in good conditions, but actually the situation is quite different: villagers are unhappy, agriculture degrades,” head of Farmers’ Movement NGO Sargis Sedrakyan told a news conference in Yerevan.
According to Sedrakyan, wrong agricultural policy resulted in polarization in villages, with several wealthy villagers owning land and too many poor people.
