My research and expert activities are related to the land use planning and assessment of consequences of land degradation in Belarus. Since 2001 I was involved into the preparation process for joining the republic of Belarus to the UNCCD. I took part in the preparation three national reports (2002, 2006, and 2010) of Belarus on implementation of the UNCCD. As an expert I carried out project UNCCD/GEF “RENATURALIZATION AND SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF PEATLANDS IN BELARUS TO COMBAT LAND DEGRADATION, MITIGATE CLIMATE CHANGE” DURING 2006-2010.
