The document rates the condition of all the components of the Baikal environment as satisfactory. At the same time, a number of federal service and agencies, such as the Federal Agency for Supervision of Natural Resources and the Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Supervision have been recommended to improve the quality of lake monitoring in man impact areas, as well as in neighboring preserves and other protected areas. Regional research and public organizations have to carry out joint sampling and analysis of waste water of the local paper and pulp works, to study its influence on Baikal. Regional and municipal authorities of Buryatia and Irkutsk region have been given the task to develop and endorse the general plans of the settlements adjacent to the lake, in order to prevent illegal construction on its shore.
