The project territory (PT) – Zhanatilek village is located at the southern foot of the western slopes of the ridge ofTarbagatay Basin of Hegin-su river.The district belongs to the foothill and steppe and desert-steppe zone. The main cause of degradation of pastures around the village Zhanatilek is a non-technology use of pastures. Desertification and land degradation in condition of climate aridization and complete violation of existing technologies grazing, loss of traditional knowledge on seasonal use of pastures and lack of funds for the revival of rational methods of gentle pasture rotation. Today, the main problem of rural communities is the expansion of livestock forage - limited and degradation of pastures, a small area of grassland, the absence of sown area of forage crops.
