Présentation
1500 (279 families) people live in Abyla village. Locals grow watermelons and fruit trees, gardens and bread livestock. Though each year it is becoming harder and harder to grow plants due to the lack of water and take care of animals due to unsustainable use of pastures. It all leads to decrease of income and worsening of the lifestyle, so as to land degradation.
On the west side of the village flows Syrdarya river, which fills the lake Irkol in spring. Lake is about 20 ha and it serves as water storage for the community. But during water level decrease in the river the water goes back from the lake to the river. To secure the water for garden’s irrigation it is planned to build a dike. To decrease pastures degradation around the village it is planned to restore the well on the distant pasture and start to graze livestock there.
These measures will help to decrease land degradation problem around the village. Results expected are 10% decrease of load on nearby village pastures, 800 ha will get back into use, 122 families will gain benefits.
