Water Supply and Sanitation
(LA) Provincial Cities Water Supply and Sewerage Project


Azerbaijan is an important junction tying together Asia and Europe as well as Russia and the Middle East. Occupying a geopolitically critical location in the Caucasus region, Azerbaijan is about one-fourth that of Japan in land area. An agricultural nation of approximately 8.5 million people (as of 2007), it holds abundant oil and natural gas resources in the Caspian Sea. In addition to constructing and improving water supply and sewer facilities, the Provincial Cities Water Supply and Sewerage Project will strengthen the maintenance and control system in 10 major regional cities. This will ensure a sanitary and sustainable living environment and contribute to geographically balanced social and economic development in the country. The cities that will receive the improvements are: Barda, Gobustan, Khachmaz, Khizi, Naftalan, Nefchala, Qusar, Salyan, Shirvan and Yevlakh.
