This is the second EPR of Azerbaijan published by ECE. The report takes stock of the progress made by Azerbaijan in the management of its environment since the country was first reviewed in 2003. It assesses the implementation of the recommendations in the first review (Annex I). It also covers nine issues of importance to Azerbaijan concerning policymaking, planning and implementation, the financing of environmental policies and projects, and the integration of environmental concerns into economic sectors, in particular water management, waste management and forestry.
ECE would also like to express its deep appreciation to the Governments of the Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland for their financial contributions; to the Governments of Portugal and Switzerland for having delegated their experts for the review; to UNEP and the United Nations Development Programme for their support of the EPR Programme and this review.
