The working group on creation of the new edition of the concept of development of northern reindeer husbandry is being formed in Yamal. It will include representatives of the departments on affairs of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North and agro-industrial complex, trade, foodstuff of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, the directorates on affairs of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North and agro-industrial complex at district administrations, enterprises interested in development of the branch.
This information was given to a correspondent of IA «Sever-Press» by the executive director of the Yamal Union of Reindeer Herders Timur Akchurin. As he says, in spring the Yamal Union of Reindeer Herders suggested the idea of creation of the concept within the conference at the department of agro-industrial complex, trade and foodstuff, and it was supported by the acting governor of Yamal Dmitriy Kobylkin. The normative and legal act about creation of the working group is being prepared now.
As Timur Akchurin notes, the Yamal Union of Reindeer Herders adopted the concept existing now within the conference in 2002. Much has changed since that time in the branch. The new regional law about reindeer husbandry was developed, but, as he thinks, the row of issues in the concept will be wider.
The executive director of the public organization supposes that the issue of development of corral reindeer husbandry will be reflected in the new document. The problem of over-exploitation on pastures, in his opinion, can be solved with not decrease in the number of animals but with redistribution of lands. This issue is very important in the eastern part of the region, where active industrial development takes place. Scientists will be attracted to solve this issue. The expert council will conduct assessment of territories.
At the present time a land plot was allocated in Shuryshkarskiy district to a farming enterprise for 25 years for corral reindeer husbandry. The Union of Reindeer Herders is ready to render assistance in making of the business-plan.
