The essence of the matter: The protection of especially valuable territory, ice lakes from the construction of the tourist complex, taking into account when making city-planning documentation of especially valuable nature conservation areas, Emerald Network, wetlands.
The essence of the problem:
In May 2017, the Rakhiv and Tyachiv Regional State Administrations adopted regulations, which approved the detailed plans of the territory and determined the functional purpose of about 14 thousand hectares for recreational use. Of them, under construction up to 1300 sq.m.
Detailed territorial plans are developed with gross violation of national legislation, and internationally and without proper environmental impact assessment.
In particular, 42 species of plants and 51 species of animals of the Red Data Book of Ukraine (2009) occur in the Svydovets massif, whose populations may disappear as a result of the investment. In total, 93 types of the Red Data Book of Ukraine and dozens of regional and international red lists are threatened as a result of the project implementation.
The planned large-scale human impact on these areas, which cover the unique habitats of rare endemic, relict, arctic-alpine and border-areal of species threatens the destruction of this unique protected area, which in 2016 was the announcement of the Emerald area.
Svidovets unique Transcarpathian region, because there is a mountain wetlands Transcarpathia. This hollow subalpine wetlands in glacial circuses (Montenegro, Svydovets) hollow forest belt hanging (slope) and pryshylovi.
In addition, Svydovets rise three rivers that form the international river basin Tisa.
