Environmental protection and stabilization (Solution of the ecological problems of the Carpathian region) A complex of activities aimed at solution of the problems of the Carpathian region, environmental protection and stabilization, and solution of agricultural problems is to be fulfilled in the following directions: elaboration of decision-making systems for emergency cases of anthropogenic and natural catastrophes; research of the level of pollution of the atmospheric air in urban areas of Transcarpathian region with carcinogenic substances; research of the impact of solid household waste polygons and dumps upon the ecological state of environmental objects; fight with formation of mud streams; improvement of the ecological state of Transcarpathian minor rivers; preservation and recovery of forest zone upper confines і;
fight against spread of particularly dangerous non-aboriginal plants; preservation of the gene pool of the Hutsul breed horses; development of horticulture and viticulture. Implementation of the above activities will enable: to substantially enhance public safety in case of emergence and duration of natural flood and mud stream situations; to optimize the anti-flood defence system; to provide for a number of conditions required for permanent nature management; to create the necessary prerequisites for the natural ecosystems return to their initial natural state within the region of the Carpathian Mts. both in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.
Projects No.Project titleTerm of fulfillme nt, years Results expected 1Adoption of decision making patterns for anthropogenic and natural disasters 2011– 2016 Increase of the level of trustworthiness and preciseness of the decisions taken to forecast the natural phenomena, viz. floods, hurricanes, etc. 2Fight with formation of mud torrents Development and launch of the systems of fight against emergency cases resulting in formation of mud torrents (a Useful Model Patent issued). 3Development of the method and flowchart for conservation and regeneration of the forest zone upper confines Development, adaptation and launch of the method of raising the upper confines of the forest zone in the Ukrainian Carpathians to strengthen the forests hydrological role and improve regional forestry management.
4Study of the pollution level of the atmospheric air in urban areas of Transcarpathian region with carcinogenic substances 2011– 2013 Statistical research of automobile traffic intensity in urban areas of Transcarpathian region, taking into account the fuel and vehicle categories; quantification of vehicle emissions in the urban areas of Transcarpathian region having no stationary observation points (i.e., in all Transcarpathian cities/towns, except for Uzhhorod); estimation of the volumes of vehicle emissions based on international methods and standards; calculations of dangerous substance concentration fields by mathematic modeling methods in the urban areas of Transcarpathian region; identification of mean daily doses of influence (LADD) and carcinogenic risk levels (iCR) for public health in certain cities/towns and rayons of Transcarpathian region. 5Development of an overall flowchart for the fight with the spread of extremely dangerous alien (non-aboriginal) plants Evaluation of the current state of the communities of most dangerous alien (non-aboriginal) plants; an overall flowchart of liquidation of the concentration sites of most dangerous alien (non-aboriginal) plants is to be suggested; recommendations on making further spread of most dangerous alien (non-aboriginal) plants impossible are to be developed and fulfilled.
6Evaluation of the resource potential of medicinal plants Study of the biological and use stocks of medicinal plants; Establishment of the limits of laying-in of medicinal plants according to the set standards; Development of cartographic material showing the locations of industrially attractive communities of medicinal plants. 7Preservation of the gene pool of horses of the Hutsul breed by their use at agriculture and forestry, mountain tourism and therapeutic riding (hyppotherapy) Expansion of opportunities of environmentally friendly agricultural production; environmental conservation during logging and agricultural production; rise in efficiency of resort-type treatment (diseases of locomotor apparatus, central nervous system, cardiovascular diseases, diseases of respiratory and digestive systems).
8Study of the impact of solid household waste polygons and dumps upon the ecological state of environmental objects Evaluation of the current state of affairs, and data on stockholding of solid household waste in Transcarpathian region; data on the changes in the state of environmental objects affected by the solid household waste polygons and dumps; recommendations on minimization of the impact of the solid household waste polygons upon the ecological state of environmental objects; recommendations on the ways of solution and softening of the issue of solid household waste in Transcarpathian region; calculations of possible biomass emission from the solid household waste polygons and dumps in Transcarpathian region. 9Evaluation of the ecological state of Transcarpathian minor rivers, and identification of its improvement possibilities Data on the real ecological state of Transcarpathian minor rivers; detection of the sources of anthropogenic impact upon the state of minor rivers, and possible ways of its elimination; mapping of the areas of minor rivers, and estimation of their recreation attractiveness; recommendations on improvement of the ecological state of Transcarpathian minor rivers, optimization of human economic activity with regard to their impact upon minor rivers, including that of tourism and recreation.
10Production of grape saplings based on the use of Biogumat preparation 2011– 2013 Increase of grape plants survivability as compared with the current technologies; lowering of the products cost price by cutting the power inputs; output of ecologically pure products, and environmental protection by means of application of a natural physiologically active preparation. 11Promising clonal rootstock and varieties for early- maturing pear-tree plantations 2011– 2014 Optimum selection of the clonal rootstock of pear trees adapted to the growth conditions, early-maturing, high- yield variety-rootstock combinations, and main elements of pear crowned saplings growth technology.
