In Azerbaijan, the IBD is celebrated annually on 22 May. On the eve of IBD, two new specially protected areas were created in Azerbaijan. One is a National Park, the other a State Nature Reserve. In preparation for IBD, greening activities were carried out in these areas. Activities aimed at raising public awareness were also carried out by school children, students and the general public. Posters, booklets and promotional news reels were prepared for these purposes.

In recent years, the following were established in Azerbaijan:
  • 8 national parks
  • 4 nature reserves
  • 3 protected areas
  • 5 of the existing nature reserves were increased in size.

The work continues.
