Zusammenfassung: Increasing activities of Russia in the Arctic Council and Convention on Biological Diversity imply for the revision of the flyway approach in the studies of migratory species and intensification of these studies. The Yamal Peninsula is the home for scores of thousands of ducks, geese, and swans of many species, whose migration routes stretch to different continents. In accordance to international conventions, many countries must share the responsibility for their well-being. Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug (Area) is a key territory for millions of waterbirds nesting in the Arctic. Conservation of the rare species and sustainable management and use of game waterfowl are the problems of highest international priority. We witness now some negative tendencies which may result in population decline of a number of rare and game waterfowl species. The problems require urgent solving, and the methods of resource management are being constantly improved and should be based on up-to-date, scientifically grounded, and innovative approaches. The results of studies recently carried out in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, as well as the measures aimed at implementation of diverse flyway-based conservation plans were highly appraised in Russia and abroad. Widely acknowledged potential of the region should form the basis for broad-scale cooperation. Being the leading Arctic region of Russia, Yamal deserves to become the sampling area for development and testing of the modern approaches to sustainable management of the migratory waterfowl populations. ​I hope that the Conference will give a great impetus to development of innovative methods and procedures in basic research, conservation of waterfowl, and game management. I am convinced that the Conference will play a key role not only in development of ornithological science, but also in raising public awareness of nature protection and wise use of biological resources of the Arctic region.
