Azerbaijan’s pavilion at COP28 starts to function

Azerbaijan is represented at COP28, the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), by its pavilion.  


The national pavilion, created by the joint organizational activities of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation and the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources within the framework of COP28, which will continue until December 12th, in Dubai, covers the theme “Pioneering sustainable solutions for climate resilience”.


The pavilion’s concept was built on the rich flora and fauna of Azerbaijan.

At the pavilion created in an interactive format, information is provided about Azerbaijan’s policy on climate change, measures taken by the Azerbaijani government towards reducing greenhouse gases released into atmosphere, its activity on mitigation and adaptation, and other projects in this sphere.  


Such sections as “Energy Transition”, “Environmental Map”, “Renewable Energy”, “Smart Village” etc. are functioning at the pavilion. Created in an interactive format, Azerbaijan’s Environmental Map reflects National Parks, Climate Types, Renewable Energy, Water Resources, and Green concept. Each theme presents the map of Azerbaijan with detailed information about the existing infrastructure and future projects. The installation at the pavilion covers also the Red Book of the Republic of Azerbaijan, climate initiatives and combatting landmines. Information is provided here about animals and plants entered on the Red Book and those endangered in Azerbaijan, ecological projects implemented by NGOs and state entities, as well as landmine issues and their ecological impacts in the country.


In the section “Plant a Tree” of the pavilion are presented the tree planting initiatives carried out in Azerbaijan, in Karabakh in particular, aiming to restore the ecological balance disturbed during the occupation by Armenia. By filing an application using a notepad, each visitor of the pavilion may join the tree-planting initiative (pine and olive trees) and, whereby, support restoration of Karabakh’s ecological balance. These trees will be planted in Fuzuli city of Karabakh.
