Bonn, 6 June 2011 - The Republic of Azerbaijan is host to an amazing variety of migratory waterbirds. More than 50 of the waterbird populations covered by AEWA concentrate in internationally important numbers in the Kizil Agach Nature Reserve which borders the Caspian Sea in southern Azerbaijan, making it one of the most important sites for migratory waterbirds in the Agreement area.As Azerbaijan is not yet a Party to the Agreement, the UNEP/AEWA Secretariat organized a meeting at the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan in Baku on the 26th of May to follow up on accession discussions launched with the country several years ago. Ministry representatives confirmed that the accession process is ongoing and estimated that - depending on when a final sign off by the Cabinet of Ministers is obtained - AEWA could be ratified by the Parliament and signed by the President within a year.
