Ferghana Valley has often been the place of various conflicts, especially in the border areas between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. Most of the disputes related to the limited natural resources, in terms of access and use of resources. Such conflicts are significantly exacerbated by the lack of clear demarcation of the border along a substantial portion of the border.

Because of the lack of a consistent policy of centralized state, the burden of conflict resolution on the shoulders of the border Ayil Okmotu - rural local self-government bodies. Many border AO Batken region have considerable experience and expertise to manage ethnic conflicts arising over access and use of natural resources such as water, land, pastures, forests. Most of the knowledge and practice accumulated AO through training and practice is not common and are not considered in local and / or national regulations. They also can not be found in any other legal documents.

 

On February 1, 2011 RDF has launched new project on peer learning of local government representatives on conflict management and mitigation in areas prone to ethnic conflicts.

- Information campaigns and seminars for members and local leaders in targeted AO, forming groups, exchange visits and experience;

- A national workshop involving all stakeholders, including representatives of the authorities to discuss the existing problems and their solutions based on best practices.

 

Project expected results

According to the results of the project there were collected best practice examples that have proven their effectiveness and ability to apply to other aiyl okmotu which were included in recommendations for local governments and public authorities on conflict management over natural resources.
