Two profile ministries decided to join forces in the development of ecological tourism in Belarus. On August 25, 2016, on the basis of the Republican Landscape Reserve "Naliboksky", the first in many years a joint visiting meeting of the collegiums of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection, on the one hand, and the Ministry of Sports and Tourism, on the other, took place. What problems in the field of ecotourism and how the ministries will solve - the correspondent of DigitalTravel found out.

On August 25, heads of both ministries, heads of regional departments and specialized departments gathered in the Republican landscape reserve "Naliboksky". Before the official part, the participants of the meeting under the leadership of the director of the reserve Vasily Gurko and the environmental engineer Yuri Mazura tested the ecological path 960 meters long, examined the eco-estate "Syabryn". After that, it was time for the official part.

For reference. Natural complexes and ecological systems occupy 57.3% of the territory in Belarus, 8.8% of them are specially protected natural territories (SPNA), where the main resources of biological and landscape diversity are concentrated. In 2016, the system of PAs in Belarus includes 1275 territories. The most important of them are the Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve, 4 national parks (Belovezhskaya Pushcha, Braslav Lakes, Pripyatsky, Narochansky) and 98 reserves of republican significance. To manage 26 zakazniks, 24 state environmental administrations (GPUs) have been created, another 5 GPUs manage national parks and the Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve.

What problems in the field of ecological tourism in Belarus were discussed at the meeting of the collegiums?

PERSONNEL HUNGER

This problem was raised in the reports of several speakers of the meeting at once: the lack of qualified employees with experience in the formation of a tourism product, as well as the lack of specialists who speak foreign languages.

LACK OF EFFECTIVE CONTROL SYSTEM

The potential of specially protected natural areas in Belarus today is used only by a third. Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Igor Kochanovsky sees the reason for this in the low interest of the local authorities, which sometimes does not show any interest in the work of the managers of the GPU reserves. This suggests that ecotourism in the country today is developing chaotically - there is no single well-coordinated system of management, work, cooperation.

- In view of the low interest of local authorities, as well as the lack of a system for the development of this direction of tourism, ecological tourism in the territory of the reserves is developing extremely slowly. While it may well be the "locomotive" of the development of the regions. Thus, according to the results of the GPU's work in 2015, the total revenue amounted to only 3.1 billion Belarusian rubles. The reserves received 22.5 thousand people, of which 2.1 thousand were foreign tourists. This level of income is comparable to the income of one national park for a year, Igor Kachanovsky summed up.

National parks and nature reserves have made significant progress against this background. According to the data announced by the Department of Sports and Tourism of the Vitebsk Regional Executive Committee, for 8 months of 2016 the Braslav Lakes National Park earned 160 thousand dollars in equivalent - the growth rate compared to the same period last year was 120%; Berezinsky Biosphere Reserve for 8 months of 2016 earned 200 thousand dollars in equivalent - the growth rate was 150% compared to the same period last year.

If you are tired of city concrete and bustle, but going with tents far beyond Minsk is also not an option, there is an alternative. Eco-trails, of which in Minsk, for a minute, as many as 10, will hide from everything that infuriates in the city, and will give peace and tranquility of nature for several hours.

Ecological trail - a specially equipped route passing through various ecological systems and architectural monuments. In Minsk, they are scattered in different areas - they are mainly laid near rivers, in parks and woodlands.

The length of some Minsk eco-trails reaches two kilometers. All routes have information boards about the birds and animals that live in this location, or, for example, about the trees that are found here. In general, you will both relax and discover Minsk from the other side.

Eco trail "Chizhovka"

It was opened a year ago - in June 2018. The trail is located immediately behind the Minsk zoo, the entrance is from the side of Uborevich street. It is unlikely that you will miss it: at the beginning of the track there are stands with a route map and information about the informational content of the trail.

The entire path, which, by the way, is quite short - only about 700 meters, goes through a small forest. Along it there are benches, observation and children's areas, places for recreation and picnics. But we advise you to walk to the middle of the trail and stop right here - on a small area overlooking the Svisloch.

As for the usefulness, during the walk you can learn about the forest and biodiversity, about what birds live in this location and how to live environmentally friendly. And if you scan the QR code at the stands of this trail, you can additionally listen to the voices of birds, view videos and photos. All information has been prepared by the Center for Environmental Solutions.
