The success of the joint Russian-German Bikinsky climate project in Primorye was confirmed by the governments of the two countries

A joint statement on the successful results of the project on the protection of the Bikin River in Primorye, implemented with the active participation of WWF (World Wildlife Fund), was signed by the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia and the Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety of Germany

The success of the joint Russian-German Bikinsky climate project in Primorye was confirmed by the governments of the two countries
“Both sides stressed that the implementation of the Bikin climate project made a significant contribution to the preservation of old-growth mixed forests in the Russian Far East. The protection of this territory provided, on the one hand, the preservation of the planet’s climate, on the other - the vital activity of the indigenous peoples and is of fundamental importance for the population of the Amur tiger, ”the press service of the Amur branch of WWF Russia reports.

It is noted that the parties agreed to continue cooperation in the field of nature protection, appreciating the activities of the Russian-German working group on nature protection and biological diversity.

In addition, this year we plan to launch a joint project “Biodiversity conservation in the northern regions of Russia to achieve the objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity through expanding and strengthening the network of protected areas adapted to climate change”. This project was prepared by WWF.

The project “Protecting the virgin forests of the Bikin River to reduce the effects of climate change” was launched in 2009 in Primorye in the Bikin River Basin as part of the International Climate Protection Initiative of the German Federal Government.

WWF Russia and Germany, in partnership with the Tiger Indigenous Minority Community in Primorye, became its main performers.
One of the results of the joint work was the creation in November 2015 of the national park "Bikin" on the area 1,16 million hectares. These forests provide an opportunity for the preservation of 10 percent of the Amur tiger population and the development of the traditional environmental management of the people of Udege. During the project, it is also estimated that, in general, forests in the project area hold 113,8 million tons of carbon dioxide, and saving them from cutting down annually prevents greenhouse gas emissions in the amount of 183 thousand tons of carbon dioxide.
