Monitoring, information, public participation and education

The first Environmental Performance Reviews of Azerbaijan highlighted a number of areas of environmental monitoring and information management that required particular attention and improvement. Most enterprises did not monitor their emissions into the environment. Ambient environment monitoring networks run by various public authorities were underdeveloped and weak. Analytical laboratories were poorly equipped. There was no coordination between monitoring institutions on location of monitoring posts, sampling methods and data exchange. No comprehensive environmental publication was published in Azerbaijan on a regular basis.
