Implementation of international agreements and commitments

Between 1995  and 2003, Azerbaijan acceded to or ratified 14  major multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs). Since then, and in line with the recommendations made in the first Environmental Performance Reviews (EPR) in 2003, Azerbaijan has mainly focused on the implementation of MEA provisions. The country has made substantial progress in implementing some of the MEAs in its priority areas (see section 4.2), but for others implementation has barely started.
