Hide / Show Abstract

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.
