Plenary papers. Interviews. Resolution. Yaroslavl: Publishing house of the Pastukhov Academy, 2013, pp.24-29.


In his paper, Professor G.A. Fomenko outlined the key factors affecting environmental protection in Russia and in the Yaroslavl Oblast: the global economic crisis; the creation of new geoeconomic and geopolitical balances by countries and regions; the transition to a new technological way of life; occurring climate changes; decrease in the labor force and increase in the burden of budgetary commitments per employed person. He says that environmental issues of the Yaroslavl Oblast should be addressed with regard to changes in the social and economic areas with the focus on increasing the sustainability of development of the region and transition to green economy. It implies both modernization of top polluters and stimulation of creation of new high tech production facilities ensuring innovation-driven growth. Professor emphasizes that special attention should be paid to “measuring” the development using effective indicators in rational use of natural resource and environmental protection.
