Decrease of disappearance rate of endemic and Red Book plant species by creation a specialized nursery in Eastern part of Issykkul basin and stimulation of saplings planting in their former habitats through marketing policy and awareness campaign
A lot of plants included in the Red Book have not had yet developed special protection measures, not clearly defined habitats and natural stocks. In connection with it, it is necessary to execute selection-genetic inventory, to select economic-valuable forms and use them for establishment of collection and mother stock plantation and for rehabilitation of structure of degraded natural stocks. At the same time collection and mother stock plantation will serve as a protected pool for rare and disappearing species.
The main goal of the project is establishing forest nursery of Red Book plants and also main indigenous species in total 60 names for transplanting them in their habitat
During the project realization the follow outputs are expected:
Ecological
Creating of collection and mother stock plantation sharply strength opportunity to realize measures on preservation and rehabilitation of rare and disappearing species which have importance for agribiodeversity.
Economic, socio-cultural or political
The project will be realized near with Aksuu forestry’s nursery. A lot of workers of this forestry will be attracted to the project implementation. The main economic and socio-cultural change is belonging of nursery and planting saplings. Low salary (even its absence) is not interested forestry workers in working for state nursery because they not sell saplings but just to hand over them. Belonging of nursery to NGO and family association changes issue of property and attitude to raised products.
