Purpose: Kyrgyzstan’s wild tulips are declining due to recreational cutting and overgrazing of montane grasslands, which also threatens grazing communities’ livelihoods. The project will improve grassland management, secure threatened wild tulips populations, enhance pastoralist livelihoods and engage 2,000 people in cultural activities. Work with 300 pasture users will ensure sustainable pasture management on 500ha, tulip conservation measures on 100ha and establishment of a Sustainable Pasture Management Agreement will impact 100,000s hectares of grasslands.
