Makhachkala, March 30, 2015. The Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commission on UNESCO Affairs approved Dagestan State University’s application to establish a UNESCO chair of biodiversity of the Caspian Sea and coastal ecosystems in the context of intensive development of oil and gas industry, the press service of the university told RIA Dagestan.
