Establishment of the Nuratau-Kyzylkum Biosphere Reserve as a Model for Biodiversity Conservation

Key Staff:

Kirsti Thornber

LTS managed a sub-project on Community Forestry and Reforestation. The overall goal of the sub-project was to address the biodiversity threats from forest loss/degradation, by developing sustainable forestry use and restoration models which are: easily replicable, founded as far as possible on traditional existing / historical practices and customs, and provide sufficient socio-economic benefits as to make widespread adoption likely. Activities will build ownership and responsibility within local communities and as a result be more likely to be sustained and supported in the long term. An emphasis was be placed on utilizing traditional knowledge and customs as far as is practically possible, thereby building on existing skills and helping to ensure appropriateness of activities for local conditions.
