In 2022, the national project “Ecology” will include a new federal project “Integrated System for Monitoring Environmental Quality”. This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Victoria Abramchenko.

The environmental monitoring system should ensure the collection of information on the state of the environment throughout the country. By 2030, the system will link data, including those in other information systems, on water, soil, air, subsoil, emissions and absorption of greenhouse gases, as well as sources of negative environmental impact and objects of accumulated environmental damage.

“Environmental emergencies, man-made accidents and the elimination of the consequences of natural disasters clearly show that the state should have unified environmental information in real time. Existing systems are fragmented. And without a single reliable resource, it is impossible to make operational management decisions to respond to environmental incidents and prevent environmental disasters. Such a resource will be a comprehensive information system for monitoring the state of the environment. It will combine and consolidate data from government information resources, as well as open data sets to form the most objective picture,” said Victoria Abramchenko.

The use of all sources of information will provide an objective picture of the state and pollution of atmospheric air, water bodies and land throughout the country.

The federal project is aimed at ensuring the achievement of the national development goal of the Russian Federation for the period up to 2030 “Comfortable and safe environment for life”, approved by decree of the President of Russia.

Responsible for the implementation of the project was determined by the PIC “Russian Environmental Operator”.

Collection, storage, processing, analysis, provision and dissemination of information on the state of the environment on the territory of Russia will be carried out by integrating existing and planned for development and creation of information resources of ministries and departments, constituent entities of the Russian Federation, and other participants in state environmental monitoring.

In 2022, it is necessary to form the regulatory framework for the information system, as well as launch a pilot service that includes functionality for monitoring emissions of pollutants into the atmospheric air in large industrial centers and provides testing of the best technological solutions for transmitting data on the state of the air online, with subsequent expansion proven principles and technologies to other cities – participants of the federal project “Clean Air”.

Until 2024, a unified information system will be created and integrated with other systems of government agencies. Also at this stage, access will be provided for citizens and legal entities.

As a result, by 2030, after the merger, as well as the development of a data collection network, its updating and an increase in the number of control points, an integrated system for monitoring the state of the environment on the territory of the Russian Federation will be created.

“The environmental monitoring system includes several bases at once – legal, informational, organizational, software and technological. The last of these will allow collecting and analyzing information about the state of the environment in Russia. To implement the integrated system, together with the authorities, REO developed a passport for the federal project “Integrated Environmental Quality Monitoring System”. The implementation of the corresponding passport of the federal project has already begun, the system itself will be created on the basis of the information resources available and planned for creation,” said Denis Butsaev, General Director of the PPC REO.
