“…For example, Azerbaijan's National Implementation Plan (NIP) 2007-2020 under the Stockholm Convention did not produce considerable improvements in accurately identifying and managing POPs pollution, as well as reduction of the toxic pollution (NIP 2007).

These areas mainly included remediated oil polluted places in Bail, a suburb outside of Baku, industrial areas of Sumgait and legacy DDT sites in the rural regions.…”

“…Estimations and inventories confirmed during the Soviet period, that~25,000 tons of DDT pesticide were used in Azerbaijan yearly (Aliyeva et al 2013), which lead to large scale, and unmanageable toxic pollution in the country (Sharov et al 2016;Swartz et al 2003). The remaining polluted sites, from the Soviet period, have been found in nearly all parts of Azerbaijan, which include both large and small pollution hotpots (Sharov et al 2016(Sharov et al , 2019.…”
