Reduction of manmade pressure on natural juniper forests of “Kyrgyzata” National Park by stimulation of growing local fast growing species of trees in the buffer zone of the national park located in the northern slope of Alay Range
National Nature Park “Kyrgyzata” was created with purpose to preserve original juniper forests. Illegal deforestation can not be stopped by forbidden and retributive measures because local people do not have other source of wood for heating, timber, horticulture and agriculture sundries (handle for shovels, picks and rakes).
The main goal of the project is reduction of illegal poaching and cutting trees nearby/ or in protected forest of National Park Kyrgyzata through the planting local fast growing trees and fruit bushes in the buffer zone to cover local people needs in wood and timber, demonstration of using non-timber forest products, raising public awareness about biodiversity, organizing public patrol and information campaign
During the project realization the follow results are expected:
Ecological
Considerable reduction of load on natural juniper forests
The land erosion and degradation tempos decreasing in buffer zone
Economic
- receiving additional source of incomes availability from fruit trees and bushes (apricots, hips, jeede)
- opportunity to acquire wood on own plots without conflict with administration of “Kyrgyzata” reserve
Social and cultural or political
It is possible that by participation in project activities the local population will understand that cattle-breeding and arable farming in the existing form destroys forest and next generations will encounter with problem of land degradation and soil exhaustion;
It is possible that awareness will come, that rehabilitation of natural forest and its competent use is the only way of management in this area;
Actions to be undertaken by Public Foundation «Nurjalin»:
1.Conducting seminars and round tables.
2.Establishing community based nursery forest.
3.Fencing the planting territory.
4.Planting fast growing wood and bush vegetation in 114 hectares land.
5.Taking care for saplings and distribute lots among the local population.
6.Organizing workshop for processing non-timber forest products.
7.Organizing community-based patrols.
8.Publishing brochure and poster.
9.Information campaign
15 families it is about 30 people of Akbulak village, members of the Public Foundation «Nurjalin» will be involved in project realization.
Main project activity will take place in:
Akbulak plot, Kyrgyzata ayil okmotu, Nookat rayon, Osh oblast. Akbulak plot located nearby of Karakoy forest range which serves as buffer zone of National Park “Kyrgyzata”
The main expected ecological and economic benefits of the project are:
Ecological benefit:
-reduction of illegal deforestation in relict juniper forests, which are ecosystems with global biodiversity importance
-extend of areas with wood and bush vegetations
economic benefits
- 100 hectares of wood and bush plantings, where economical activity possible
- appearing new opportunities for not wood products processing
- price decreasing on horticulture and agriculture sundries
- expenses on firewood decreasing
