image of Environmental Performance Reviews: Azerbaijan

This second Environmental Performance Reviews covers the nine issues of importance to Azerbaijan related to policymaking, planning and implementation, the financing of environmental policies and projects, and the integration of environmental concerns into economic sectors, in particular the sustainable management and protection of water resources and the protection of the Caspian Sea, waste management, air management, forestry, biodiversity and protected areas.



Waste management

Azerbaijan still faces challenges in its efforts to achieve efficient waste management. Nevertheless, the Government has made waste management one of its priorities. Since Azerbaijan acceded to the Basel Convention in 2001, the legislative framework was widened from a single act to several legislative norms. Actions needed to improve the waste management situation were included in the Comprehensive Action Plan for Improving the Environmental Situation (CAPIES) in Azerbaijan for 2006–2010.
