13 August 2010 [16:05] - TODAY.AZ
The third meeting of the participants of Framework Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the Caspian Sea (Tehran Convention) will take place in Kazakhstan, from November 24-26.

The Convention coordinates efforts by Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, the Russian Federation and Turkmenistan to reverse an environmental crisis brought about by habitat destruction, industrial pollution and the over-exploitation of fish and other marine life.

The first meeting took place in Baku, in May 2007. The participants considered four protocols to the Convention that set out specific, detailed obligations in the fields of biodiversity conservation, environmental impact assessment, oil pollution incidents and pollution from land-based sources. Two of these protocols are expected to adopt in the upcoming Kazakh meeting.
