Author of the "Ecological Civilization (EcoCivil)" concept as a central element of sustainable development goal. Author of the following scientific and humanitarian concepts initiated during professional and scientific career on Gene Pool Conservation; Environment, Sustainable and Knowledge-Based Development; Ecocivilization Planning, Management and Assessment:
1979 – Forecast and Prevention of the Biodiversity Reduction. (A new concept allowing identification of the most vulnerable species by analyzing resistance capacity of genetic structures. Important for biodiversity conservation. Patented. Concept and details outlined presented in different books and published papers).
1981- New Complex System to provide for Ecological Security. (A new system of sustainable environment management based on the technological, componential and compensatory approaches. Concept and details have been presented in different books and papers).
1992 – New System of Health/Environmental Quality Assessment and Management. (The concept introduces an informative and economically effective human centered system of the health/environmental assessment based on the genetic indicators. Concept proposes a compensatory approach for health/environmental sustainable management though the use of antimutagens, anticarcinogens, geroprotectors. Concept and details have been presented in different books and papers).
1998 – "Ecocivil" as a goal of the Sustainable Development. (The new concept specifies the necessity of combining an optimal proportion between the population size and growth, consumption culture (including the green fashioning), creation of new consumption culture, providing for the antimutagenic regulation of the resistance in existing ecological situation, and green economic development. Ecocivil concept targets to steer society from excessive to reasonable consumption behavior. Starting from 1998 concept and it's different details and components have been presented in different books and papers).

(A new concept which means that development approaches offered to the newly independent or developing countries are based on new for them but outdated by global standard technologies and approaches. Such type of development contributes to the widening gap between the developed and developing world. This form of development is labeled as "development without future" - it limits the countries' free competitiveness in the future. Azerbaijan HDR, 1998, Chapter 4).
2006 – "Environmental planning and management as an integrated system". (A new concept which means that environmental planning, management and monitoring is an integrated system with natural, social, economical and political layers. Basics of Sustainable Human Development, Textbook for Universities and other tertiary schools, Baku, "Tehsil", 2006, Chapter 1).
2011 – "Ecocivilization Index". (A new index for quantitative assessment of countries or territories for readiness for transition to new level of civilization – ecological civilization. Proceedings of the Azerbaijan National MaB, UNESCO "Ecological Civilization, Sustainable Development, Environment, 2011, v. 7).
