The project aimed to assist the Kyrgyz authorities in the implementation of its nationwide Yak campaign in the Tien Shan Mountains, to reconcile the economic objectives of the extensive Yak-husbandry with environmental objectives and thus to preserve the biodiversity of alpine pastures in the Kara-Kujur valley of the Tien Shan Mountains. In order to achieve the project objective, a sustainable pasture and grazing management for the model region Naryn was developed and a marketing strategy for the livelihood of the local population was prepared.
