Project idea (in English)

Wetlands which disappear are a global problem. The impact can spread from the one country to another and far beyond its borders. Over 1 million hectares of wetlands had been drained at the past century in Ukraine. This has resulted in the transformation of wetlands into degraded lands and has created an additional source of carbon emissions. Drained wetlands moved from state ownership to private and were abandoned. Restoring of wetlands will have a next Transboundary effect for neighboring regions: - dangerous fires will not extend to neighboring regions; - the air pollution by greenhouse gases will be reduced; - natural resources and biodiversity will be saved for next generation; - there will be a new place for integrated research scientists from other countries with the same landscapes which also require rehabilitation.
