Environmental Performance Reviews promote sustainable development throughout Europe. They present detailed studies on the environmental position of each country and examine the framework for environmental policy and management. This evaluation focuses on Azerbaijan.



Water management

Azerbaijan is poor in terms of available water resources. A large part of the country, notably the Kura-Araz lowlands and the Absheron peninsula, has a significant water deficit due to low precipitation and high evaporation. This part, which houses more than 70% of the population, is completely dependent on irrigation for its agricultural production.
