There are more than 120 varieties of mineral resources in the depths of Ukrainian lands. Of these, about 30 have the extremely important economic value. Ukraine ranks fourth in the world in terms of the aggregate value of natural resources. We cannot but be proud of such statistics.
Ukraine's place in the world in terms of amount of natural resources
WE DO NOT GET DIVIDENDS FROM MINERALS
There is a huge problem that prevents the Ukrainian people receive dividends from extraction of mineral resources on their land. In our country there is still no system of public accounting of natural resources. So, people are denied the opportunity to have information about the wealth of the land on which they live. Due to this there are many cases when a plot bought from the community for pennies, brings billions to its new owners.
YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE RESOURCES OF YOUR TERRITORY
The Encyclopedia of Territories is a public resource, the task of which is to make a territory of inhabitance ultimately open, and the availability of resources within them – transparent. Every citizen has the right to know everything about the natural wealth of the area where he lives. Why? For this is his/her own wealth as well. The implementation of this right is the main purpose of our resource.
