Sustainability Goals

The UN's sustainability goals, which are achieved through our project:

Ensure a healthy life for all

expand
Many microorganisms are frozen in permafrost. These include bacteria, fungi and viruses. If the permafrost thaws, these organisms also come to life. Novel diseases could break out and spread as a result. The preservation of permafrost is therefore essential for the well-being and health of people.

Promoting sustainable industrialization and supporting innovation

expand
Numerous roads, railroad tracks and power lines have been built on permafrost. If this thaws, huge holes are created, so that the infrastructure in the region is destroyed. The preservation of permafrost is thus a prerequisite for reliable and resilient infrastructure in the Siberian region.

Making cities and settlements, safe, resilient and sustainable

expand
The thawing process of permafrost triggers landslides. Buildings and homes built on permafrost soils could fall victim to this disaster. To ensure the safety of cities and settlements in the regions of permafrost soils, the thawing process must be stopped.

Measures to combat climate change and its effects

expand

A total of 1,600 billion tons of carbon are stored in the Arctic permafrost. That is twice as much as is currently in the atmosphere and three times as much as is stored in all the world’s forests. If even a fraction of the soil continues to thaw, this will vehemently accelerate the greenhouse effect and consequently also global warming.

Protect and restore terrestrial ecosystems and promote their sustainable use

expand

The natural ecosystem in the region is restored through the settlement of a wide variety of animals. The Pleistocene Park provides a protected habitat for the animals so that they can reproduce. This restores the original balance of the glacial steppe and, as a result, prevents the thawing process of the permafrost soils.

Global partnership for sustainable development 

expand

The expansion of the Pleistocene Park can only be secured through an international partnership. Financial resources are mobilized from a wide range of sectors and used for the benefit of sustainable development. In addition, the exchange of knowledge, expertise and research results is supported.
