In March 2001, CRD organized a Seminar entitled "Formation of TI Chapter in Armenia: Prerequisites and Perspectives." Results of the meeting include the formation of a National Anti-Corruption Coalition in Armenia and the development of a three-year action plan for the coalition. 10 out of 15 participating organizations signed the Memorandum of Understanding affirming their intention to form a National Anti-Corruption Coalition under the umbrella of CRD/TI Armenia. Today, 20 non-governmental organizations specialized in various fields are members of the Coalition. CRD/TI Armenia is currently developing a database on all ongoing projects of the member organizations and is planning to publish a brochure on the Coalition and its ongoing and future anti-corruption activities.

In September 2001, CRD/TI Armenia, along with its Georgian and Azeri counterparts, started a joint Project Promoting Transparency at Regional Customs designed to further regional economic development. The Project is funded by the South Caucasus Cooperation Program, Eurasia Foundation. It includes the following: review and analysis of appropriate legal provisions and regulations; public opinion survey and focus group discussions to identify the most corrupt practices; promotion of public awareness on customs-related issues; and development of policy recommendations to increase transparency and efficiency of customs administrations throughout the South Caucasus.

In September 2001, CRD/TI Armenia organized the first TI Regional Workshop entitled South Caucasus Cooperation in Combating Corruption, held in Yerevan. TI International Secretariat, Berlin, funded the preparation and organization of the Workshop. The main goal of the workshop was to enhance cooperation among the interested parties in the region to promote transparency, accountability and integrity through the joint anti-corruption initiatives. Representatives of TI Offices from Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, TI International Secretariat, as well as representatives of the government sector and international community attended the workshop.

In October 2001, CRD/TI Armenia received another grant from TI International Secretariat, Berlin for adaptation of some chapters of the Source Book to the Armenian reality. The adapted materials will be distributed among interested parties: government officials, members of the Coalition, other NGOs, business community, media, etc. CRD/TI Armenia is currently seeking extra funding to provide adaptation and publication of the whole book.
