DEAR FRIENDS, THERE IS NO NEED TO NEGLECT BUT TO SUPPORT, PRESERVE THE SUMMER PASTURES, BEAUTY OF NATURE, HERBS, PASTURES AND THE FUTURE!

Our pastures are one of the main economic bases in our republic. Pastures affect agriculture, economy, tourism, business, high level of culture and, the most important, the life of the Kyrgyz people.

In fact, the life of rural people is liaised directly with pastures. In spring they graze cattle on distant pastures to increase the number of livestock, make harvesting; in autumn they sell the cattle, harvest cattle feed, and in winter they feed the cattle and go back to the pastures in spring. According to statistics for 2018, 4 million of our population lives in rural areas. About 90 percent of them keep two or three heads of livestock in the yard.

As a result, land resources are better managed to prevent degradation.
