Preparation of Azerbaijan’s Third National Communication on Climate Change


Project Inception Workshop, April 2012

In 1995 Azerbaijan ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). As part of its reporting obligations under the Convention, Azerbaijan is required to regularly prepare National Communications elaborating on the key issues and responses related to climate change.

Project Goals

The goal of this project is to support Azerbaijan in preparing and submitting its Third National Communication in accordance with its commitments as a Party to the Convention. The project will also result in increased national capacity to produce subsequent reports that meet all guidelines established by the Conference of Parties (COP) and that can serve as a source of information for national policies and measures in climate change and other key economic and social sectors.

Project Accomplishments

  • Project Inception Workshop was completed and work plan endorsed by the stakeholders
  • Core teams on Greenhouse Gases (GHG) inventory and Adaptation were established and started providing inputs to Azerbaijan’s Third National Communication
