At the meeting devoted to the analysis of the ongoing activities on improving environmental situation and protection of the environment, determining actual tasks in this sphere, issues of flora and fauna protection, their rational use, expansion of protected natural territories were discussed.
Last year, 3 782 cases of poaching and violations in protection of flora and fauna were revealed. Six of eight state reserves are under the jurisdiction of the State Committee on Forestry, two are under the jurisdiction of the State Committee on Geology and Mineral Resources and the State Committee for Ecology and Environmental Protection. There is no single management system for them. In this regard, the need for studying the issue and developing sound proposals on transferring reserves to the jurisdiction of a single state body was noted.
Particular attention was paid to issues of constant monitoring the collection and transportation of waste, enhancement of culture and responsibility of the population in handling waste.
Health and well-being of people lie on the basis of activities that are being carried out in this direction. Therefore, this issue must be addressed in every district and on a permanent basis, emphasized President Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
Responsible persons were given corresponding instructions on the discussed issues.
