Vegetation of Degraded Watershed and Establishment of Fruit Orchards
Illegal cutting continued in Pistaciatum verm and Juniperatum zones in upper Mountain which both as natural sentinels have provided natural protective mechanism for the conservation of environment.
Converting of rangelands in to rain fed agriculture and shifting cultivation are also continuing as destructive factors against environment. Other notorious illegal activities carried for the collection of Glycerhizia glubra and tamarix from the river banks.
The natural habitat of wildlife including birds and fishes have been exterminated by uncontrolled hunting which all have their effects on creation of unbalanced ecosystem for instance before 1978 deer were frequently coming down to Farmanqullie village in Badakhshan but currently because of destruction of their shelters deer disappeared.
Dreadful floods due to the degradation of upper mountain, vegetation uncontrolled collection of medicinal plants and herbs badly spoiled the slopes and caused soil erosion.
Under this project indegenious trees will be planted and vegetable gardens will be established for community use which will improve children, women and men health. It will help the protection of biodiversity in the area.
