Dauria Going Dry: adaptation to climate change in transboundary headwaters of the Amur River Basin

The project aims to develop and to promote science-based adaptation measures for the complex cycling climate of the Dauria region, which is severely affected by global warming. The project addresses domestic and international policy-making, as well as selected conservation and monitoring practices in the field. It is also planned to create a platform for scientists from interested countries to advance the understanding of dynamics in the Dauria ecosystems under climatic and anthropogenic influences.

The project coalition led by Daursky Biosphere (representing DIPA) and WWF Russia aims to harmonize transboundary river protection and management in Dauria through:

  1. Strategic assessment of river management options in the light of climate adaptation
  2. Establishing wetland monitoring system in both Argun and Uldz basins
  3. Enhancement of protected areas network as one of key adaptation measures -
  4. Awareness raising program program on climate adaptation in transboundary Dauria.
