Know your onions: sustainable plant use in Tajikistan
FUNDING SCHEME Main Project
This project will ameliorate threats to plant biodiversity in Tajikistan by reducing unsustainable amounts of wild harvesting.
Communities in rural Tajikistan will benefit by developing small-scale agro-biodiversity plots through participatory marketing of selected threatened species leading to increased and more resilient income, access to locally grown produce, and increased capacity to cultivate produce. Awareness of the sustainable use of biodiversity will be raised through a "National Report on Native Plants for Livelihoods", stakeholder and community capacity development, and education and awareness events.
