The Federal Arctic Forum “The Arctic Days in Moscow” will be held from the 21st to the 25th of November. The first deputy minister of natural resources and ecology of the Russian Federation Denis Khramov participated in the press-conference. According to him, the forum is called to acquaint visitors with all the sides of the Arctic — the northern pearl.
According to him, the business program of the forum contains 26 expert activities, and the cultural part — 19 various events. In total, at least 50 thousand guests are being expected, as the organizing committee of the forum “The Arctic Days in Moscow” informs. The plenary session, which will be attended by representatives of federal authorities and governors of arctic regions, will be the main business event. The theme of the meeting is “Ecological agenda. For the sake of development. For the sake of a human being”.
Speaking about uniqueness of the Arctic, Denis Khramov recalled the figures characterizing its resource potential. Thus, according to him, in the Russian part of the region natural gas reserves make 55 trillion cubic meters, oil — more than 10 milliard tonnes, gas condensate — almost 3 milliard tonnes, coal — almost 9 milliard tonnes.
As Denis Khramov says, the potential of new discoveries is huge. For example, gas fields have been found recently in the Severo-Obskoye area. Availability of such riches, first of all, means that it needs to use production technologies of the highest standard with the minimal impact on nature. As it was done, for example, in Yamal, where the titanic work was fulfilled, modular structures were created and the system was balanced.
He underlines that the main task for all industrial plans is to preserve the fragile arctic nature.
“We still have to clean up many traces of thoughtless activity left by man. The Arctic is the climate “kitchen” of the whole world”, he said.
The chairman of the interregional public ecological organization “Green Arctic” Aleksey Rudkovskiy, who participated in the press conference, spoke about the forthcoming work of the section dedicated to activity of volunteers in the Arctic. According to him, it is planned to elaborate “the roadmap” for development of arctic volunteering.
