Strategy for the Development of the Podlemorye Nature Reserve

Strategy for the Development of the Podlemorye Nature Reserve

August 2022 – present

What problem are we solving?

Social, environmental, and economic changes are taking place in the territories under the jurisdiction of the Federal State Institution «Zapovednoe Podlemorye», caused by changes in legislation, global climate processes, the economic situation, and the mood of residents in the settlements within the national park. The institution needs a development strategy in order to adapt to the changes that can be predicted. The current strategy of the FSBI «United Directorate of the Barguzin State Nature Biosphere Reserve and Zabaikalsky National Park» for 2022-2030 requires modernization, extending to 2050.


To create a Development Strategy of the FSBI «Zapovednoe Podlemorye» until 2050 and an appendix to the Strategy – the institution’s work plan for strategic directions until 2029.

What has already been done: 

  • the Foundation team visited the «Zapovednoe Podlemorye» and collected input data for the project;
  • an audit of the existing strategic documentation of the FSBI «Zapovednoe Podlemorye» was conducted, and recommendations for improving the Strategy were prepared;
  • a team of experts has been assembled, and seven thematic blocks of the Strategy have been identified and agreed upon:
