Central Kura Basin District: Key water issues
May 2015 | Print | Brochure

The Environmental Protection of International River Basins (EPIRB) project aims to improve the quality of water in transboundary river basins in the wider Black Sea region, including Azerbaijan. One of the specific objectives is to improve technical capacities by developing river basin management plans (RBMPs) in selected pilot river basins, according to the requirements of the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD). One of the selected pilot basins is the Central Kura basin district, located in the Ganja-Gazakh Economic Region in western Azerbaijan. This brochure, published in English and Azerbaijani, summarises a review of the pressures and impacts on water bodies in the Central Kura basin district, prepared in the framework of the EPIRB project.

The EU-funded EPIRB project is implemented with the assistance of the REC’s Water Management Topic Area, as part of a consortium led by Hulla and Co. Human Dynamics KG.
