Ecology and environment protection

The internal resources of the Republic of Azerbaijan are however insufficient in order to resolve many of their environmental problems that have been in dire need for some time now.

    The following are the principal ecological problems of Azerbaijan

  • The pollution of water resources by way of introduction of contaminated water, including transnational pollution;

  • The supply of low-quality water to inhabited regions, the loss of fresh water prior to it delivery to the end consumers, insufficient development of sewer systems;

  • Air pollution from industrial plants and transport vehicles;

  • Degradation of soil (erosion, desertification, etc.);

  • Improper regulation of industry and housing, as well as hazardous solid wastes;

  • Decline in biological diversity;

  • Decline in forest reserves and fauna, especially fish reserves
