The government has prepared a federal scientific and technical program in the field of Russia’s environmental development and climate change for the period up to 2030. 5.9 billion rubles will be allocated from the federal budget for its implementation over the next three years. This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister Victoria Abramchenko.

“The program is aimed at creating science-intensive technological solutions in the field of environmental safety, improving the state of the environment, studying the climate and mechanisms for adapting to its changes,” said the Deputy Prime Minister.

The focus of the program is the problem of greenhouse gases, sustainable socio-economic development of the country, taking into account the low level of emissions. It is envisaged that technological solutions will be developed to study sources of emission and sinks of greenhouse gases, as well as measures to reduce their impact on the environment.

“The implementation of the program will give an impetus to the development of scientific and educational centers, infrastructure facilities for research and development. It will contribute to the emergence of inventions claiming international patents and science-intensive technologies with proven results in the field of environmental development,” Victoria Abramchenko specified.

As a result of comprehensive work, greenhouse gas monitoring systems will be created, including a system for monitoring “black carbon” in the atmospheric air, economic and mathematical models for predicting climate change and managing the risks associated with it. It is also necessary to develop our own and test world methods for determining effective low-carbon technologies in economic sectors, as well as technologies for absorbing greenhouse gases. The program also aims to create technologies to increase the absorption capacity of forest and swamp ecological systems.

“Russia will receive its own scientific and methodological base, which will allow not only to better understand the ongoing changes in the environment and anticipate possible risks for the economy of the regions and their inhabitants, but also to effectively reduce them. In addition, the developed methods will make it possible to objectively assess the situation and pursue a balanced national policy in the context of the global fight against carbon emissions,” said Victoria Abramchenko.
