WWF Developed the Methods of Preservation Key Biotopes in Industrial Forests for Siberia
The Federal Law of the Russian Federation demands that such criteria for biodiversity conservation in industrial forests have to be developed for each region. Unfortunately, due to the lack of capacity or finance some regions still do not care about conservation of key biomes in industrial forests. WWF provided technical and financial support to preparing the normative for Republic of Altai, Altaisky Region and Irkutskaya Oblast in partnership with the scientists of Altaisky Region.
The documents prepared have been widely discussed during the series of round tables with a wide variety of experts. This approach proved to be effective for developing the joint approach as every side could express their concern or propose what has to be improved.
