ABSTRACT
Until now Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) does not exist in Russia as legislative practice. We made research how to ease implementation of this approach in Russia using Arctic and Subarctic as focal area. Besides analyzing real water use system we took into account climate change scenarios, flood management problems and possibilities of decision support systems using. We show that essential changes have to be maid in higher education for rapid correction of a situation with IWRM in Russia. We consider deterministic and probabilistic obstacles on this way and present instruments for overcome them. In project planning, primary attention should be given to managing political risk and adequately assess geopolitical risks. Platform https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Valery_Abramov2/?ev=hdr_xprf gave excellent opportunities to preliminary discussion and data exchange in the frame of this research. The Ministry of education and science of Russia provided financial support for this research with the state order 2014/166 and state contract 14.515.11.0002.
