The main technical adviser and regional coordinator of the Kura-2 project, UNDP Ukraine, Mary Metouz stressed that one of the most pressing problems of mankind is the threat to the stability of civilization and the environment, the dynamic growth of the economy,etc. For Azerbaijan, water resources in the Kura basin are an important source of drinking water. This water is also used for sanitation, hydropower, irrigated agriculture and much more.

Addressing the issues of integrated water resources management and reducing transboundary degradation in the Kura River basin are among the priorities in the region's environmental security.

Director of Art school Sona Guliyeva noted that children understand the true value of nature as no one else. Their vision of the world around them and the attitude to it are presented in a variety of colorful works.

The guests of the exhibition highly appreciated the works of young artists, who were awarded with memorable diplomas.
