Development of the capacity of the isolated community of the village of Khazrati Emom of the Sh. Shokhin district to preserve the traditional way of life of indigenous people, protect natural territories based on the landscape approach and rational use of local biodiversity based on local traditional approaches.
The project aims at introducing new types of non-exhaustive income-generating activities, creation of enterprises specializing in agro, eco and health tourism, provision of tourism and other related services (folklore, ethnography, traditions, health and rehabilitation services in the COVID-19 pandemic), interchange network of food produced in the community, using traditional production methods and other methods of value-addition.
The idea of the project is to develop the capacity of the isolated community of Hazrati Emom village to preserve its identity and practices reflecting the traditional way of life of the indigenous inhabitants, for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity.
The project will promote non-depleting natural resource management practices, new forms of employment for sustainable livelihoods.
The project will also provide for active households to secure areas adjacent to the Sanctuary on contractual terms for the protection and implementation of non-depleting activities.
The Project also envisages to transform part of the buffer area of the Reserve (from 2 to 5 thousand hectares) as a pilot version into a public nature reserve (Article 31 of the Law of the RT "On specially protected natural territories"), where economic and management tasks will be legally assigned to the community of Hazrati Emom village.

Project Characteristics and Results
Gender Focus
Gender issues and female empowerment are key to the project and are an integral part of its approach to development. The active involvement of women in new alternative economic practices through agro, eco and health tourism will have a positive impact on gender issues. Strengthening social inclusion of women, youth and vulnerable groups within the project will be ensured by supporting local community initiatives to promote gender issues, support vulnerable groups, youth participation, gender equality in practices and sharing of benefits derived from project activities. As the objects of ecotourism are both cultural values, traditions, everyday life and national rituals, the new tourism programmes are expected to involve women significantly in developing services related to culture, national traditions, community life and crafts that are preserved by the local population.
Capacity - Building Component
The capacity needs of the grantee will be met through a series of educational trainings, the establishment of a pilot demonstration nursery on natural resource reproduction for subsequent ecosystem restoration and the introduction of new alternative economies, which will generally increase the capacity of the Hazrati Emom community.
