Caucausus environment and development - new collection of maps and graphics

Presenting environment and human development issues in the area, as defined in the WWF action plan for the Caucasus ecoregion.

The collection Caucasus ecoregion - environment and human development issues presents 18 new maps and graphics. These have been prepared to support and enhance the transboundary and sub-regional cooperation in the mountain ecoregion of the Caucasus in the field of conservation, management and sustainable development.

The illustrations present a number of concerns related to the eco-region protection. The Caucasus eco-region includes six countries - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Russian and Turkey - and follows the eco-region definition prepared by WWF in their action plan for Caucasus.

Themes represented in the maps include:

  • Poverty and demographics
  • Agriculture
  • Roads, railroads, shipping, pipelines and other infrastructure
  • Conservation and ecological characteristics
  • Economy
  • Pollution
  • Water management

Please see the collection Caucasus ecoregion - environment and human development issues for more information and full graphics.
