Title: Ecological and Environmental Training in Rural Azerbaijan
This project will be implemented in the southern regions of Azerbaijan Republic. There the Kur and Araz rivers flow into the Caspian Sea. The population living in this region has no ecological knowledge regarding causes of serious environmental problems. The government started reforms but these do not cover the rural regions at all. Moreover the population does not obey these arrangements. This project aims at educating the population and giving them knowledge about the danger of chemical by meeting the community leaders in order to organize trainings about environmental issues. Further plans call for meetings with the communal department of each region. Thus the education program will have a wider range and maybe alter people’s habits in future.
