too much buildings and way too much population for city's capacity
I think what is needed for Azerbaijan it is good well developed regional cities. Only Sumgait and Ganga are real cities. I mean that several cities have to develop more and more services and urban life stile. I think these cities should be Xachmas, Shirvan, Lenkaran, Sheki and Mingachevir. All of them have to have population over 100thousend and have to establish good services there. In fact scientists says that the best quality of life provide the cities between 100 000and 500 000polulation. If there are several such cities around the countryside every Azerbaijani will have access to the urban centers in about 50-70km. This will provide perfect regional development for the all country. These cities will attract the main migration flows (instead all people to move to Baku)
And it will be not necessary to change the capital.
huge damage to Caspian Sea? hope you are joking because its already heavily polluted
Khazar Island wouldnt look the same if it wasnt in the sea
and Khazar Islands is supposed to be a green city
