Crisis prevention & recovery
Many countries are increasingly vulnerable towards violent conflicts or natural disasters that can erase decades of development and further entrench poverty and inequality. Azerbaijan still experiences the consequences of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and is increasingly exposed to natural disasters magnified by the climate change. Through its knowledge network, UNDP shares innovative approaches to reducing disaster risks and building community resilience to climate change effects, and supports the country in its post-conflict recovery efforts.
UNDP strives to assist the country to clear its lands from mines and unexploded ordnance - a direct consequence of the conflict, and build adaptive capacities to manage climate change induced disasters such as floods and water stress. more
Projects and Initiatives
Ministry of Emergency Situations and UNDP work together to improve the water and flood management systems and reduce the impact of climate-induced flooding and water stress in Azerbaijan, particularly in the vulnerable mountainous communities of the Greater Caucasus. More
