Caspian Sea: State of the Environment 2019

21 Apr 2020

The Caspian Sea State of the Environment Report presents a sober diagnosis of the challenges faced by the Sea and its marine environment. The report is the second in a row of analytical overviews underlying the implementation of the Framework Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the Caspian Sea (Tehran Convention). The threats remain similar to those diagnosed in 2011, when the first such report was produced. In response, littoral countries plan to rehabilitate land contaminated by oil, create protected areas, develop aquaculture and increase the use of organic fertilizers, among other measures.
