BAKU, Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan is on the right track in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), UN Resident Coordinator Vladanka Andreeva said during an event on ‘Green transformation in Azerbaijan: Sustainable Development Goals’, Trend reports on November 2.


“Azerbaijan set the goals of achieving ‘green’ growth and a clean environment as one of the priorities. The country’s plans to reduce hydrocarbon emissions and increase the use of renewable energy sources will help achieve these goals,” Andreeva noted.
