FLEG Promotes Forest Safety in Azerbaijan

This is the first manual of its kind in Azerbaijan developed with the contributions of leading national forestry scholars and experts.

Forest-based recreation activities are rapidly increasing in Azerbaijan. However, visiting the forest is not always safe and fun. Sometimes, people face unexpected emergencies, which they are unable to handle. Visitors do not always know basic safety rules and can cause an irreparable damage to the sensitive forest eco-system. The Forest Safety Manual addresses these problems.

The manual is the product of cooperation between the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources (MENR) and the Ministry of Emergency Situations (M ES) fostered by the FLEG II Program in Azerbaijan. It explains forest-related emergencies, forest fire safety, and prevention of negative impacts on the forest ecosystems to the public. It gives a wide overview of information on the proper modes of conduct in emergency situations.

“So far our main task was to strengthen forest-related knowledge among the youth and thanks to our partners in Azerbaijan and through series of Program’s publications, many children in the forest-dependent communities and beyond have been encouraged to take forest safety seriously“, said Azer Garayev, FLEG II Program’s World Bank Country Coordinator.
