This advisory assistance project managed by UBA was devoted to showing Armenian students of engineering what they need to take into account to prevent, as far as possible, accidents giving rise to water pollution from occurring at industrial installations.

The Armenian non-governmental organization Eco Peace and the students jointly applied a checklist developed by UBA to actual industrial plants in Armenia. The project was successful in three respects: The subject of industrial safety was incorporated into the engineering curricula of Armenian universities. The safety deficiencies identified at the inspected facilities were addressed. Thirdly, this approach to knowledge transfer was included into the future work programme of the UNECE Convention on the Transboundary Effects of Industrial Accidents, with the aim of carrying out such a training programme in further countries.
