Russia suggests Arctic digital Red Book creating

April 01, 2022

The new format will eliminate the need to process information from nine regional Red Books.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Red Book of the Arctic should be in the format of a database. Such an initiative was announced at a meeting on the Arctic and biodiversity conservation of the Federal Supervisory Natural Resources Management Service’s (Rosprirodnadzor) Scientific and Technical Council at the Project Office for the Development of the Arctic (PORA).

The traditional book format no longer meets all the requirements of users, including scientists, investors, and regional officials. The Red Book in the format of an electronic database will allow displaying data with reference to place, accumulating new information and regulating the level of access for various categories of users.

The PORA press service also noted that the digital base will provide a comprehensive vision of the situation in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation and eliminate the need to process information from nine regional Red Books. The wider Red Data Book of Circumpolar Flora and Fauna initiative can be implemented by all member countries of the Arctic Council. In the future, the books of the participating countries can be brought together in a single database, on the basis of which GIS layers can be formed on demand and brought to paper.

“Today we should focus on the domestic environmental agenda. In the form of the Red Book of the Russian Arctic, we will receive a tool that demonstrates responsible governance in the Arctic region – this is what Russia has declared as a slogan in the Arctic Council”, said Nikolay Doronin, member of the Rosprirodnadzor’s Scientific and Technical Council, the PORA chairman of the board.

Earlier, Russia approved the strategy for the polar bear preserving until 2030. Nornickel will take account of polar predators as well. Also, we told about the Taimyr Red Book birds.
