Baku Sustainable Urban Transport Investment Program (AZERBAIJAN)

Continuing our cooperation with the Asian Development Bank, the id:rc was just awarded a contract to undertake an environmental evaluation of an urban transport project in Azerbaijan. This came following a request made by the Azerbaijan Ministry of Transport and the Baku Metro Company, to ADB to help improve its urban transport system and provide technical and financial support to upgrade the urban infrastructure in Baku and strengthen the urban transport sector. The id:rc specialists will undertake the project’s environmental categorization procedures to review potential environmental impacts, temporary and permanent damage to the environment, particularly forests, wildlife reservations, areas with archaeological value, and potential risks from toxic and hazardous chemicals.
