By: Amina Nazarli

A meeting between Azerbaijan’s Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources Huseyn Bagirov and Bulgarian minister of environment and water resources Ivelina Vasileva was held in Baku on November 18.

The two sides signed a two-year program on implementation of the “Memorandum of Understanding between the Azerbaijan and Bulgaria on Cooperation in the field of environmental protection.”

The program is aimed at preserving biodiversity and developing strategic plans for its conservation.

It provides for the exchange of best practices, covering various fields, including the management of protected areas, activities in the protected areas for sustainable use, environmental impact assessment, global climate change and hydrometeorology, protection of the ozone layer, soil, transboundary water and air from pollution, waste management, protection of water resources from pollution.

Azerbaijan is keen on providing legal reforms for air pollution reduction, such as the law on enterprises. This law requires a full examination of enterprises in order to identify exposure levels and to evaluate environmental damage.
