A pilot Russian-Korean project is being implemented in the Leningrad Region

The Leningrad Region will become a pilot project for the implementation of the Russian-Korean project "Comprehensive Waste Management Plan", the press service of the Ministry of Natural Resources said.

Such a decision was made at the 9 meeting of the Russian-Korean joint committee for cooperation in the field of environmental protection, held in Moscow 13-14 November 2014

In 2015, a waste management plan will be agreed, a co-executor selected, a coordination center established, and a master plan for waste management is planned for 2016. The funding will be provided by the Korean Ministry of the Environment. The project is focused on the application and adaptation in the Russian conditions of the Korean experience in the field of waste management.

The parties discussed a joint project "Air pollution management using a telemonitoring system for pollutant emissions (CleanSYS)". This system can monitor and control 85% of air pollutants in real time. The system currently controls the emission process for 15% of all emission sources in Korea. The purpose of this system is to solve the problem of air pollutants, to establish an integrated procedure for the management of air pollutants on the basis of bilateral cooperation.

In addition, the parties plan to develop bilateral monitoring cooperation within the framework of the Korean-Russian Permafrost Research Program of the Arctic Zone in response to environmental change due to global climate change. A preliminary consultation is planned between Russia and Korea to establish a monitoring base in the Russian permafrost.

The two sides exchanged views on global environmental issues, including COP20 and GCF (Green Climate Change Fund). Strengthening cooperation between Russia and Korea within the framework of regional multilateral environmental mechanisms (organizations), such as NEAPPEC and the UNEP Marine and Coastal Zone Action Plan for the Northwest Pacific (NOWPAP), will contribute to the protection in the field of environmental protection, environmental safety and natural resource management. Both sides agreed to strengthen cooperation in addressing common environmental problems, such as transboundary air pollution, including through multilateral mechanisms, primarily in Northeast Asia.

The 10 session of the Russian-Korean Joint Committee on Environmental Cooperation will be held in Korea at 2015.
