The Russian Federation is one of the initiating founding member countries of IIASA. Since its creation in 1972 with the idea of the leaderships of the USSR and the USA to use scientific cooperation as a “bridge” for building relations between East and West, IIASA became a unique place where scientists from Russia and other parts of the world could work together on topical global problems.
Forty-five years of continuous intensive cooperation proved to be beneficial and created long-term benefits.
Russia is the world’s largest forest country. Being home to more than a fifth of forests globally, the country’s forests and forestry have enormous potential to contribute to making a global impact in terms of climate mitigation. A new study by IIASA researchers, Russian experts, and other international colleagues have produced new estimates of biomass contained in Russian forests, confirming a substantial increase over the last few decades.
