One of the most discussed topics of Environmental economics is the choice of the appropriate functional form to examine the income-environmental impact relationship. Since the developing economies encounter different development stages, the use of relevant specification and technique gains special importance to reveal the country speci c relationship. Considering the afore-mentioned points, this study employs the time-varying cointegration approach to investigate the CO2 emissions-economic growth relationship in the case of developing country, Azerbaijan. Time-varying cointegration approach a) takes into account the varying nature of elasticity of emissions and b) does not require the functional specification to be a polynomial. e results document a long-run relationship between carbon emissions and income. e study also concludes that the EKC hypothesis does not hold in Azerbaijan. e positive and time-varying income elasticity of carbon emissions, slightly decreasing at the end of the time period, can be seen as an indication that the country has implemented a number of successful emission/pollution regulatory measures.

Before joining KAPSARC in September 2017, Jeyhun was an associate professor at the Department of Statistics and Econometrics at Azerbaijan State University, and the Department of Economics at Qafqaz University, where he taught econometrics, statistics, and mathematical economics. His other roles have included director of the Research Institute for Social Sciences and Humanities, and head of the Center for Socio-Economic Research. Jeyhun was a postdoctoral researcher at Indiana University Bloomington, United States (U.S.). He has also been a visiting researcher at several institutions, including the Center for Econometric Research, Sungyunkwan University in Seoul, South Korea; Vistula University, Warsaw, Poland; the University of North Texas, and the University of South Texas, both in the U.S. Jeyhun’s research is focused on applied time series econometrics, the economics of energy, the environment and sustainable development. He has authored over 40 scientific articles published in peer-reviewed journals and is an editorial board member of the International Journal of Advanced Multidisciplinary Research and Review, the Journal of Management, Economics and Industrial Organization, and the Journal of Socio-Economic Studies, and a member of the International Association for Energy Economics.
