Conflict resolution around the pastures used by foreigners

The boundaries between the Southern parts of the Kyrgyz Republic and its neighbor countries are considered hot zones; this is confirmed by frequent conflicts in those territories. These disputes especially increase in the summer time because of how resources are allocated between residents of different countries in that region. In 2014, due to the increasing number of conflicts, the government, together with the deputies, conducted an analysis of the conflict. They found that one of the main sources of conflict was the issue of pasture use. Since 2009, PF RDF has been involved in the enactment of the transfer of powers of pasture management in the border areas with the Parliament and the Government. During this time, together with the Department of pastures at the Ministry of Agriculture, RDF was able to lobby for the adoption of amendments to the Law "On pastures". Since November 2014, RDF launched a new project "Conflict resolution around the pastures used by foreigners ", with the support of NED.
