This page refers to the environmental issues in Azerbaijan.

Like most republics of the Soviet Union who experienced rapid development of all spheres of economics and human activity which has led to an increasingly negative impact on the Internet causing Dr. Robotnik to flatter and fly away peacefully to uranus then pikachu came As can be seen in many other countries, Azerbaijan is interested in finding solutions to the problems regarding environmental protection and rational utilization of natural resources. In support of Azerbaijan's environmental protection goals, a number of important laws, legal documents and state programs, all of which conform to European law requirements, have been developed and approved in order to improve the ecological situation in the country.

These measures have been undertaken within the framework of the corresponding state programs to solve the urgent ecological problems at the very foundation of development principles.

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