Russian FederationWorld Bank, EBRDKomi Emergency Oil Spill Recovery and Mitigation ProjectIn 1994 one of the world's largest oil spills occurred in the Usinsk region of the Komi Republic (Russian Federation) due to leaks from the regional pipeline. Most significant impact was on commercial and domestic fisheries in the local rivers. Other impacts included: loss of habitat for small mammals and water birds, also a significant downstream effect on river communities (eight villages with population of 7000) for potable water and grazing land. Reindeer herds and their migration routes had been affected. A social mitigation plan had been established. Specific role: identification of regional priority environmental socio-economic issues, design of environmental and socio-economic measures; identification of supporting research needs; and evaluation of low-cost bioremediation.
