Russia and Germany for the first time united to save valuable forests Bikin

Memorandum was signed by Ministry of Economic Development and Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety of Germany in the final session of the 11th meeting of the Forum of civil society in Russia and Germany

"Petersburg Dialogue".

According to WWF, Russia demonstrated a willingness to take a serious commitment to truly innovative projects on sustainable forest management.

The project is implemented by WWF and funded by the International Climate Initiative by the German Government in accordance with Article 6 of the Kyoto Protocol from 2008.

"During the past 20 years defending the public forest p.  Bikin from the claims of Timber. Implemented over the past three years the joint Russian-German project climatic failed to substantiate the value of Bikin for minorities, for the tiger and its unique importance on a global scale, - says Evgeny Lepeshkin, project coordinator, leading the Amur branch of WWF Russia. - Therefore, the support of the project at the level of the two countries, Russia and Germany - an event both regular and symbolic. It shows how our leaders understand the value of 'Russian Amazon' and attaches great importance to its preservation.

The main objective of the WWF project is to preserve the pine-deciduous forests from logging Bikin. Bikin nut-fishing zone and a band of water-protection zone with total area of ​​461.154 million hectares of available generic community "Tiger" in the lease for 49 years for harvesting food forest resources and medicinal plants. The first three years the costs of renting is the German Development Bank, and then the community must be able to pay for itself by harvesting pine nuts, Siberian Ginseng, fern, vine and other forest resources.

It is estimated that the virgin forests of the middle reaches of the Bikin River accumulate biomass, capable of holding at least 113 million tons of carbon dioxide. Therefore, the preservation of these forests to the prevention of industrial logging in their territory will make a significant contribution to the fight against global warming. And the resulting environmental benefits, translated into so-called "Carbon credits" will fund a project to preserve bikini in the long run.  Being a rich storehouse of food forest resources, forest Bikin form forage for ungulates and fur-bearing animals, which ultimately has a positive impact on the Amur tiger population, and the welfare of Udege and Nanai, the leading traditional industrial-hunting lifestyle.
