Kyrgyzstanis a mountainous country in which, in comparison with other natural resources, forest resources are presented in a small amount. However, in spite of the fact that only small area of our country is covered with forests, they are rich in biodiversity, and serve as a constituent element of ecosystem. Forests are playing not only an exclusively important protective and ecological role, but also are a source of valuable forest products that are especially important in a day-to-day life of population living close to them. Non-timber forest products such as wild berries, medicinal herbs, walnuts, fruit and mushrooms, are exerting great impact on the socio-economic development of communities’ residents residing close to forests. Villagers are collecting fuel wood, fodder for cattle, graze farm animals in forests and make various produce from collected fruit. For many of them, especially for the poor and women, collection and use of non-timber forest products is generating a sufficient income for their family budget.

 

Project Goal

Study of institutional and market limitations constraining the local communities’ representatives living within the boundaries and around forest areas to increase their incomes for the use of forest resources, in particular of non-timber forest products.

 

Research within the project framework was aimed at a study of formal and informal interrelations between forestry and local population, needs and expectations of both parties, and a study of possible tools for partnership to be the most efficient in the use of non-timber forest products.

 

Project Main Beneficiaries

The Government of Kyrgyzstan, residents of local communities, living within the borders and around forest areas.

 

Selected Forestries

- Chon-Kemin State National Park, Chui oblast

- Jaiyl Leskhoz, Chui oblast

- Toskool-Ata Leskhoz, Djalal-Abad oblast

- Toktogul Leskhoz, Djalal-Abad oblast

- Batken Leskhoz, Batken oblast

 

The research was conducted in three directions

First: analysis of the role of official institutions involved into forestry management, in consideration of legislative base on forestry management, as well as the activity of forestry on the whole.

Second: study of formal and informal tools for forest resources management, official and actual schedules of forest resource use, study of social capital of communities located near or at the territory of forest areas, and their role in management and use of forest resources.

Third: a value chain study – beginning from types of forest resources important for income generation by local community and up to internal and external markets and exporters with the aim to determine how the value is formed from those or other forest resources along with a structural and other problems’ assessment.

 

Project Results

The study results were be integrated into a unified analysis with legal and institutional recommendations on consideration of Leskhozes, local communities and Aiyl Okmotu  interests towards forest resources management and use based on mutually eligible and profitable access to forest and non-timber forest products.

 

A workshop for stakeholders was called by the end of the project in which the study results to be presented, issues on further joint initiatives discussed, as well as recommendations for introducing changes at legislative base made.
