The results of the year of the Arctic in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) exceeded expectations

2014 - the year of the Arctic in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) brought many positive results.

This is how the implementation of a large comprehensive program "Social and economic development of the Arctic and northern regions of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) for 2014-2016 and for the period up to 2020" began.

At the same time, the State Committee on Arctic Affairs was established, whose immediate task is to solve the urgent problems of the northerners.

One of the most important achievements of the year was the expansion of the construction of social facilities and housing. So this year, over half a billion rubles from the budget of the republic was allocated to modernize and renew the housing stock. Kindergartens have been built in the villages of Srednekolymsky, Abyisky, Zhigansky and Verkhoyansky districts, gyms have been built in the villages of Zhilimde (Oleneksky district) and Yunkur (Verkhoyansky ulus), and a multifunctional culture and sports center has opened in Srednekolymsky ulus. By 2017, it is planned to commission 26 social facilities, including 12 kindergartens, 9 schools and 5 healthcare facilities.

Another equally significant result was the deployment of work on the industrial development of the Arctic regions. The extraction of strategic raw materials is carried out on the gold and antimony deposits of Sentachani and Kyuchus. The deposit of rare-earth metals is being developed on the territory of the Olenek district. Deposits of coal, tantalum and niobium in Abyisky area. Within the Momsky district there is an oil and gas basin. The development of a coal deposit is underway in the Verkhnekolymsky and Srednekolymsky regions.
