Nornickel gives specific assistance to indigenous peoples

The company is implementing a large program to support the indigenous peoples of the North.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. One of the largest programs to support the indigenous minorities of the North, implemented by Nornickel, is based on the practical needs that the natives experience in reality. This idea was voiced in Murmansk at the international forum Public-Private Partnership in the Sphere of Sustainable Development of Indigenous Peoples.

After a series of consultations with most of the Taimyr communities, it was possible to determine their daily needs. The analysis showed that there is a need for a refrigeration unit for storing venison, fish and wild plants, a club in one of the villages, and support for folk crafts.

These simple but necessary things, upon closer examination, are included in the production chain of managing these communities.

“We are in direct interaction with the communities. Under the head of the company’s Polar Division, a Council of Indigenous Communities was established, which includes a large number of communities. And we expect that this council will help to coordinate the needs that these communities will have in the future.

Participation of Nornickel in providing the tundra people with necessities is not just help in the form of a gift, but something that can be used for production purposes and bring benefits”, said Andrey Bugrov, the Nornickel directors board’s chairman.

The latest news from the program of real assistance to the local population of Taimyr is the construction of two new residential buildings in the village of Ust-Avam and six ones in Volochanka. Several families moved to new housing, improving their living conditions.
