Armenia Environmental Issues:The environmental issues of land-locked Armenia are numerous.

There is soil pollution from toxic chemicals, such as DDT, and deforestation from the inhabitants scavenging for firewood during the 1990’s energy crisis. In addition, Armenia has restarted their Metsamor nuclear power plant in spite of its location in a seismically active zone.
