Experts Decide How to Save Unique Ecological Systems of the North

Permafrost, which occupies 65 percent of Russia’s and 30 percent of the world’s territory, is at stake due to global warming and human economic activity in the 21st century. According to scientists’ forecast, only a fifth of the present day areas of Russian permafrost will remain by the middle of the century.


The vanishing of permafrost in Russia should be prevented with the federal draft law on rational attitude towards it. The law has been developed by the parliament of Yakutia and supported by the regions of Siberia, the North and the Far East.


Experts and authorities in the northern and far eastern regions assume that the new federal law will ensure the permafrost to remain, having legitimized the use of new technologies and the introduction of new construction standards.
