About the project

The principal target of the project is single ecologically representative and efficiently managed PA system of Russia providing preservation globally important and under threat eco systems. Its main task is representative and efficiently managed PA network providing conservation of primary boreal forests eco systems and taiga in the Republic of Komi. To fulfill this task the following results should be achieved:
  • PA system of the Republic of Komi reconstructed for more efficient preservation of globally important bio diversity;
  • Growth of institutional potential to manage protected areas within the SPNA system of the Republic of Komi;
  • Diversified revenue flows for PA system of the Republic of Komi as a result of using business planning principles.

Outcome 1: The PA system of Komi republic is redesigned so as to better capture globally significant BD

This Outcome will address the main constraint to an effective KR PA system, namely systemic capacity barriers.  As discussed above, the main such barrier is the fact that the current KR PA system is not aligned with major biodiversity values.  The two federal PAs represent an exception to this rule, as they are located in an area of very high biodiversity value, as reflected in the inclusion of Ural Mountain Taiga as one of WWF’s Global 200 Ecoregions, but the regional zakazniks do not effectively capture high biodiversity values.  The MNR/KR has initiated an assessment of each regional Zakaznik.  However, the project will accelerate this process and ensure that accurate measures of biodiversity values are collected (Output 1.1), then use this information in preparing a proposal for a re-designed PA system, and securing government endorsement of the proposal (Output 1.2).  Support will also be provided to the development of a system strategic plan (Output 1.3) and the formulation and adoption of proposals for zoning of PAs and of regulations governing resource use in each zone (Output 1.4).  Finally, Output 1.5 will address the other major systemic capacity barrier, namely that the current PA system is divided in two, with 50% of the area under the authority of the federal government and 50% under regional control by establishing a federal – regional management agreement with a common management goal, processes and activities for the KR PA system.
