Lake Sevan: Experience and Lessons Learned Brief (Lake Basin Management Initiative). 2005. (780 KB)

Lake Sevan (Figure 1) is situated in the northern part of the Armenian Volcanic Highland, in Gegharkhounik Marz (province), 60 km to the north from the capital of Armenia, Yerevan (Figure 2). Lake Sevan is the greatest lake of the Caucasus Region and one of the greatest freshwater high-mountain lakes of Eurasia. The basin of Lake Sevan makes up one sixth of the total territory of Armenia. A peculiarity of Lake Sevan includes that the small ratio between the catchment and surface area of the lake is only 3:1, compared to other major lakes (10:1 on average).
