Mine contamination delays implementation of multilateral projects in liberated Azerbaijani lands

“The contamination of the liberated territories with landmines is slowing down the implementation of multilateral projects there,” said Azerbaijani Deputy Economy Minister Sahib Mammadov as he addressed the 3rd Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Dialogue themed “Outcomes of the Global SDG Summit 2023 and the role of the Supreme Audit Institutions in the implementation of the SDGs”.

The deputy minister described the mine factor as the major obstacle to the rehabilitation of these areas. He also highlighted President Ilham Aliyev’s proposal to add the demining activity as the 18th SDG in the 2030 UN agenda for sustainable development, adding that the 18th SDG project had been drafted and presented to the local and international public.

“The relevant project will include 5 targets and 15 indicators,” Mammadov noted.
