Russia to clean up eight most polluted cities by 2024 in $60.8bn national Ecology project

The Russian Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has announced plans to fully clean up the most polluted cities in Russia by 2024 within the framework of the state’s national Ecology project.

A Clean Air section has been added to the project, which seeks to improve the ecological situation in the most badly affected cities such as Norilsk, Krasnoyarsk, Omsk, Chelyabinsk and Chita.

The Ecology project also includes a number of federal programs:

  • Clean country
  • Construction of facilities to separate and process solid municipal waste
  • Drinking water
  • Forest conservation
  • Conservation of Lake Baikal’s unique water resources

A total of 4 trillion rubles ($60.8 billion) will be channelled into the national project, of which 3.2 trillion rubles ($48.6 billion) come from non-budget sources.

The program is being carried out within the framework of the Russian president’s decree on national goals and strategic tasks for Russia’s development up until 2024.

Ecology is supervised by Deputy Prime Minister Alexei Gordeyev, and led by Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Dmitry Kobylkin.
