Emin Huseyov, the special representative of the President of Azerbaijan in the liberated lands (except the Shusha region), reported that the experts of the United Nations Environment Program visited Karabakh.

“United Nations Environment Program experts visited Karabakh. During the visit, the experts were shown the environmental situation of the region and informed about the future development plan.”

Thirty years of Armenian occupation of Azerbaijani lands has severely damaged the ecosystem, wildlife and natural resources in and around the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region.

Including the Armenian occupation, the use of prohibited weapons during the war, damaged nature, biodiversity, water reserves in the territory of Azerbaijan.

Armenians resorted to large-scale acts of ecological terrorism in the regions they had to leave within the scope of the November Trilateral Peace Agreement, which envisaged the return of Azerbaijan’s occupied lands.

The Coordination Center, headed by the President of the Presidential Administration, Samir Nuriyev, was established on November 24, 2020, in line with the presidential decree, in order to centrally address the problems in the liberated lands of Azerbaijan.

Currently, efforts are underway to return the liberated lands of Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan will rebuild its recently liberated areas in four phases. The first phase includes solving problems of governance and security, infrastructure, while the next phases include solving problems of social work activities, reconstruction and economic development.

In 2021, Azerbaijan allocated $1.5 billion for the reconstruction of liberated areas, then AZN 2.2 billion ($1.2 billion) in 2022. These funds primarily infrastructure (electricity, gas, water, communications, roads, education, health, etc.) as well as cultural and historical monuments.
