The World Standard of Wastewater Treatment - Baikal Water

Greeting from the Governor of the Irkutsk Region

Dear friends!

On behalf of the Government of the Irkutsk Region and myself, I sincerely welcome you to the website of the International Baikal Ecological Water Forum, which will be held for the first time in Irkutsk, in the framework of the Year of Ecology and the Year of Specially Protected Areas, announced in accordance with the decree of the President of the Russian Federation.

Nowadays, the issues of nature protection acquire not only a special meaning but a fateful significance as well. The environmental security of the country, the wellbeing of its citizens and, most importantly, the future generations depend on the resolution of these issues. It is not random that the rich program of the Forum contains such topics as "Ecological worldview. Generation-ECO " that is uniquely distinguished. We will have to work hard to ensure that an environmentally oriented generation grows up in Russia. I am convinced that the International Baikal Ecological Water Forum will strengthen this trend.

The participants of the Forum will have to work productively and discuss many topical issues, including the most important aspects of the development of innovative and energy efficient technologies in the water sector, and develop joint solutions, the implementation of which will help preserve the unique ecosystem of Lake Baikal.

I am confident that the International Baikal Ecological Water Forum will meet our expectations and make a significant contribution to solving environmental issues related to the conservation of Lake Baikal. By joining our forces, we will be able to preserve the World Heritage site for Russia and our children.

I wish to all the participants of the Forum a constructive dialogue, an interesting and fruitful work.
