Mainstreaming biodiversity conservation into Russia's energy sector policies and operations
Mainstream biodiversity conservation priorities into the Russian energy sector development policies

A significant share of Russia's biological wealth will continue to exist outside the network of protected areas. And, economic development will continue to place pressure on biodiversity outside protected areas. Most importantly, Russia's regions of globally significant biodiversity namely the Arctic, Siberia, Far East, and Caucasus are increasingly becoming the focus of energy development. The objective of the project is to mainstream biodiversity conservation priorities into he Russian energy sector development policies and into the operations of energy production sectors through pilot activities in 6 demonstration areas of the country.
