Contexte
The Garmsar Plain is like a large oasis in the middle of the desert, and it acts as a shield, stopping the desert at the footsteps of Tehran. At the southern margins of the plain there is the Central Desert, which acts as the natural drainage of the Hableh Rood River and its modern irrigation system. Degradation of the fragile ecosystem in this plain, therefore, may have also consequences of national significance.

Résumé du projet
The project aimed to reduce the use of chemicals and other agricultural pollutants through integrated participatory pest management by the local community in the Plain of Garmsar. As a result the local community were encouraged towards sustainable management of the agro-ecosystem by promoting environmental friendly practices. The farmers of FASD were trained to make use of the suitable natural predators and beneficial biota for biological pest control.The farmers trained in this project organized and conducted ‘Farmer’ to ‘Farmer’ training workshops and study tours for farmers from neighboring villages. At the end, one workshop on site and another in Tehran was conducted to disseminate the experiences and lessons learned for the stakeholders and other NGOs. The best practices were documented as films, brochures and booklets.
