According to Victoria Abramchenko, the Government has developed a Federal Scientific and Technical Program in the field of environmental development of the Russian Federation and climate change for 2021 – 2030.
Today, during a meeting of the Presidium of the Council for Science and Education under the President of the Russian Federation, chaired by Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, the program was supported.
Victoria Abramchenko said that the program will work in three directions.
First of all, it is monitoring and forecasting the state of the environment and climate. As part of this block, science-intensive technological solutions will be created to obtain reliable monitoring data and modeling of the environment and climate, as well as to predict their future states.
Secondly, to mitigate anthropogenic impact on the environment and climate. In this block, it is planned to develop a set of methods and models that will allow to form a system for assessing the feasibility and effectiveness of the application of measures aimed at mitigating the anthropogenic impact on the environment and climate.
Thirdly, on the adaptation of natural systems, population and economic sectors to climate change. In this direction, it is necessary to develop solutions that will make it possible to form a system for assessing environmental and climatic risks in Russia and adjacent water areas to justify and take the necessary measures to adapt to climate change, taking into account regional and industry specifics.
The program includes several blocks of events. First of all, it is the conduct of scientific research and development mainly on the basis of scientific and scientific and educational centers. Second, the creation and development of advanced infrastructure for research and development. Third, the introduction of research results into practical projects, as well as organizational support for the implementation of the program.
The FNTP implementation plan will be formed for each three-year period. In total, it is planned to allocate about 34 billion rubles for the implementation of the program.
