Bid Book » Book1 » Environment and Meteorology » Environment And Natural Resources Management System

Russia is fully committed to the principles of sustainable development and the UN programme documents on environment and development. The management of these principles is conducted by a dedicated state policy and comprehensive system of governmental bodies, including specialised agencies. The legal framework for the environmental management in Russia is comprised of the Concept on Transfer to Sustainable Development of the Russian Federation, National Environmental Doctrine, the Federal Environment Protection Law in force since 2002 and the Federal Target Program «Ecology and the Natural Resources of Russia, 2002-2010». The state regulation over this activity is carried out by the RF Ministry of Natural Resources through a system of federal agencies containing centres for environmental programmes, standardisation and monitoring, and research and educational establishments.

Observing the federal guidelines, Moscow has set up its own regulatory framework within the Moscow City Government (MCG) which includes a system of environmental programmes with an annual average cost of US$ 130 million. The major MCG bodies and other institutions engaged in ensuring an enduring ecological legacy in the City are listed in the Chart. During the 2012 Olympic Games, all of these and many other related establishments will closely collaborate with the Moscow OCOG as a whole and its Environmental and Medical Commissions in particular.
