At the event, the scientist made a presentation on "Environmental problems of improving water supply to the population in Azerbaijan Republic."Makhmudova noted that the location of the river systems of Azerbaijan in the arid climatic zone of the republic, global climate change, as well as pollution of our largest rivers (Kura and Araz) by neighboring states cause a 20 percent reduction in clean water reserves. The Kura River within the city of Tbilisi (40 km) and the left tributaries of the Araz River are subject to anthropogenic impact from some regions of Armenia and are subjected to very serious pollution, as a result of which drinking water supplies in our republic are decreasing day by day.
