Ecosystem-based land use and preservation of biodiversity through forest conservation and afforestation in the lower section of the Amu Darya

Objective and activities

The project aims at strengthening capacities for developing and implementing ecosystem-based adaption (EbA) strategies in Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan by promoting EbA land use and the preservation of ecosystems in the lower section of the Amu Darya River. Land use models will be elaborated in order to rehabilitate degraded irrigated land and to restore its productivity. This will relieve the pressure on the region’s few remaining riparian forests as well as the biodiversity they contain, allowing ecosystems to recover more rapidly. The project is also working at different levels to increase people’s knowledge of ecosystem-based land use alternatives, primarily by training local actors in new methods. The national stakeholders and international development partner will be supplied with the concepts developed by the project for up-scaling.
