00070439 - Mainstreaming biodiversity conservation into Russias energy sector policies and operations, FSP

Description:


The project objective is to mainstream conservation priorities into Russian energy sector development policies and energy production sectors. The project will enable supportive policy, legislative and institutional environment to biodiversity conservation and will include three sectoral components aiming at reducing barriers to biodiversity mainstreaming by revising existing corporate policies and planning, and introducing new technologies and biodiversity solutions in three key energy sectors: oil, hydropower and coal. The project will develop and implement demonstration activities in four pilot regions: Nenetsk Autonomous Okrug, Khakassia, Yakutia, and Dagestan.




The main expected result of the PPG stage of the project is the preparation of a project document for submission of a full-sized project grant request to GEF.
