Developing sustainable use and preservation of biodiversity in Uzunakmat river basin on Korgonshanek zone and also developing ecotourism.
This project by NGO "Center Ecobilim" started to implement as a planning project. This region in Jalalabat oblast the river basin of Uzunakmat river has a rich vegetation. There are globaly important plants growing in this area. Most of them are in the Red Book of Kyrgyzstan. However, the lack of awareness about the current situation among the local population and irrational and irresponsible treatment to the environment can cause signifcant damages to this area. That is why the implementation of this project is important. There have been tree cuttings in this area which can hurt the biodiversity of the river basin. NGO has outlined several solutions one of which is the inventarization that has to be done to sustainable preserve the biodiversity of this area. Also green patrols are going to be organized to guard the territory of the basin. However, if the awareness of people about the significance of this area and the possible damage that can be done is not increased there is not that much of sustainability in this project. Also the NGO staff has outlines the ecotourism as a priority sphere. Project staff is going to devote certain part of their efforts to the ecotourism. The actions are going to be supported by information campaign.
