One of the crucial aspects of achieving the SDGs is education. Despite documents
like the Paris Agreement (Article 12) and the UN Framework Convention on Climate
Change (Article 6), recognizing that “education, training, and skills development
are fundamental for all Parties to achieve sustainable development in the long term,”
academia is largely absent from national climate policy discussions in Azerbaijan. This
IDD Analytic Policy Paper will examine how the country can more fully integrate climate
action and sustainable development in the field of agriculture into university curricula.
This would ultimately benefit producers and, thus, the country as a whole.
