Local communities and forest service will be motivated, empowered and supported to take collaborative action to conserve, restore and sustainably use the globally important fruit-and-nut forest at two sites in Tajikistan. This results in improved livelihoods, through participatory NTFP market development, and greater resilience to climate change and other shocks.
Forest users at Childukhtaron and Dashtijum empowered and incentivised to work collaboratively with forest service to enhance fruit-and-nut forest management: conserving agro-biodiversity, improving well-being and increasing resilience to climate change.
