“Azerbaijan’s share in global emissions is only 0.15%. Nevertheless, to support the international efforts, Azerbaijan has submitted the information about its new obligations to the secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC),” Azerbaijan’s Deputy Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources Umayra Taghiyeva told journalists.
The deputy minister emphasized that Azerbaijan had made a commitment to reduce gas emissions by another 40% by 2050.
Umayra Taghiyeva described Azerbaijan as the regional leader in landscaping, noting that 2 million trees were planted this year, with the figure planned to be increased up to 3 million. “This will contribute significantly to reducing carbon emissions in the future,” Taghiyeva underlined.
