Azerbaijan

Lead Partner: KTH with contributions from WUR-LEI and Cambridge Economics

The country is a member of the Council of Europe, a member of the EU Eastern Partnership. It has signed agreements with the EU for implementing EU Directives (e.g. the Water Framework Directive), but has not yet implemented them. We selected it as a juxtaposition to the other case studies at national level. This case study is also unique in the Nexus context, because its economy is based mainly on fossil fuels (oil and gas), causing significant pollution issues, while a considerable part of the country (Karabakh region) suffers acute problems of droughts and floods, including the relocation of population due to long term post-conflict consequences.
