Kazakhstan

Titre : Sustainable land and water resources management in the arid zone of Southern Kazakhstan in terms of increased aridity

Pays : Kazakhstan

Numéro projet : CBA/KAZ/SPA/2011/01

Domaine : Community Based Adaptation

Durée : 2011/2012

Bénéficiaires : BIOGEN

Présentation
Project aim : Demonstration of the new agricultural practices to reduce the risks in the face of a changing climate conditions through introduction of innovative methods of water use and stabling goats as alternative to sheep breeding given the increasing climate aridity.
Project tasks : - Development of economically and environmentally beneficial non-grazing Saanen goat breed as an alternative to the conventional grazing cattle farming - Development of the demonstrational sites of seeded grasslands in order to enhance the forage base of the local community’s livestock - Rational groundwater management for the irrigation needs with due regard to the climate changes within the project site - Seasonal grazing patterns have been developed for the rational use of lands - Environmental awareness activities and sharing the project experience among the LC members of the neighboring villages

Caractéristiques et résultats
Pastures and environment degradation directly affects on local population and causes problems in different fields of life. New scheme of pastures management and new ways of pasturing, suggested by the project, affects on settlement management system much. Close cooperation between governmental authorities, local population, NGOs makes settlement management system better and allows taking into account interests of all parties, including the interests in nature protection and sustainable development.
The community will benefit from the more sustainable agricultural practices to be implemented and reduction of vulnerability to the climate change, especially in connection with the growing soil erosion. In addition, the more sustainable project activities will facilitate to conserve and further develop the skills gained. The project innovation is that in addition to the fact that the project facilitates to reduce the LC dependency on the climate risks, the new technologies and approaches to cattle breeding will be implemented and the forage base will be established thus enabling the local community to adapt to the increased climate aridity. In addition to the adaptation and environmental benefits the project activities will also generate the economic benefits for the local inhabitants.
