Report on the urbanization of the Caspian coast region at the scientific workshop 2018-05-16 17:11:00 / SCIENTIFIC ASSEMBLIES

The report of PhD in geography Etibar Badalov “Urbanization of the Caspian Sea coast region and its geodemographic situation” was listened at the scientific workshop of the Institute of Geography named after acad. H.Aliyev of ANAS, under the chairmanship of acad. Ramiz Mammadov.

The researcher said that the location of the capital on the shore of the Caspian Sea further enhances the significance of this region.

The Caspian coast region accounts for 17% of the country’s territory, 40% of the population (2016), and more than 60% of the urban population. On the coast there are 6 of 14 cities and 45 settlements from 100 of the Caspian region.

According to the analysis of the dynamics of population growth in cities and the growth of the urban population by districts, 80% of growth in recent years was due to natural growth.

The bulk of the migration comes from Sumgait and Baku. According to him, since 2016 fertility rates in the region have been falling precipitously, but despite the fact that mortality in all regions has decreased, it is high in Salyan, Khachmaz and Lenkaran. So, the mortality of children and middle age (50-64) is typical for such cities as Baku, Sumgayit, Lenkaran.

E.Badalov considers expedient to accelerate the introduction of demographic policy in the Caspian region.

Along with urbanization of Khachmaz and Lenkaran, it is necessary to develop medium and small cities; there it is important to carry out work on the creation of industrial quarters, urban infrastructure and agro-parks.
