Natural Resources Management

ABOUT NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

RDF takes critical view of the issues related to the regulatory arrangements governing the access to and use of the natural resources, distribution of benefits from the resource uses, and seeks to promote the good governance principles through the quality research and analysis.
 

FOREST AND RURAL LIVELIHOODS

Non timber forest resources greatly infuence on socio-economic development of local communities. In forests people gather firewood and forage for livestock, pasture animals and collect frouts and berries. Collecting and use of NTFR benefit people, especially poors and women, in ecomonic terms.

JOINT FOREST MANAGEMENT

Project aims to develop, test and distribute the sustainable model of forest management joinly with local communities based on traditional ecological local knowlegde, as well as best world experience in the field of sustainable forest management.
 

APPROACH TO MANAGEMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES

Natural resources along border areas are subject to multiple users' claims which are usually mediated to differing extent by traditional and formal norms and arrangements.

IMPROVING AND MANAGING PASTURES

Not seasonal and irrational use of rangelands, and mass cutting of trees in Kok-Oirok led to degradiation of pastures. Irrational use of natural resources like wild herbs, berries and mushrooms by local people significantly reduced their growing areas. In this respect, local communities decided to find the way for solution of the problem on their own.
 

SECONDARY USE OF RANGELAND RESOURCES

Secondary pasture resources provide important and well-timed sources from which local communities derive their livelihoods. However, inadequate regulatory arrangements give rise to numerous conflicts among different users. The resulting inconsistencies spur multiple users to compete between each other in exploitative extraction of the same rangelands, leading to overexploitation of the available resource stocks.

HORIZONTAL LEARNING OF EFFECTIVE WATER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

The degree of interaction of local authorities and AWU irrigation system management issues and irrigation water supply for local residents directly effects on getting local residents access to irrigation water.
 

EQUAL ACCESS OF BEEKEEPERS TO PASTURE RESOURCES IN THE KYRGYZ REPUBLIC

In Kyrgyzstan, the number of beekeepers sharply reduces every year for various reasons, one of which is lack of access to pasture resources because of disputes with the chabans (shepherds) and other pasture users.

COMMUNITY CO-MANAGEMENT OF MOUNTAINOUS ECOSYSTEMS MODEL IN THE KYRGYZ REPUBLIC

Since June, 2014 RDF has launched a project "Community Co-management of Mountainous Ecosystems Model in the Kyrgyz Republic"
 

BIODIVERSITY PROTECTION IN THE TRANSBONDARY REGION “NORTHERN TIAN SHAN MOUNTAINS”

A significant part of the Tien Shan is located on the territory of the Kyrgyz Republic. Mountains include an amazing variety of ecosystem services, and products that are needed not only to local residents, but also to people around the world.

EMPOWERMENT OF VULNERABLE FOREST COMMUNITIES TO STRENGTHEN THEIR FOOD SECURITY IN THE KYRGYZ REPUBLIC

From 1st of September RDF realized a new project with the purpose to increase food security and improve nutrition of vulnerable communities living near forest areas
