The proposed project will assess the current status and dynamics of the Irkutsk Regions (South-eastern Siberia, watershed area of Lake Baikal) forestry environment, influenced by man-made changes and anthropogenic impact arising from pollution sources and other negative anthropogenic drivers located in the region and in adjacent areas. It will investigate the responsiveness and vulnerability of forestry environment within the Region under different scenarios of industrial development and nature-preserving m easures. The output of the project is the adaptation of the existing GIS layers, completion and transfer into operative testing and exploitation a simplified version of the Regional Information System which serve as a prototype for other regions of Norther n Eurasia.The proposed project also includes the preparation of the detailed prospective studies and explorations aiming at the development of the efficient simulation and management tool for practical use by regional governance and nature-protection servi ce(s) for the management of risks associated with man-made changes and anthropogenic stress affecting the forestry environment of the region under investigation, as well as other regions of Northern Eurasia.
