  • 570 young people of Osh and Jalal-Abad provinces were trained 12 Vocational Schools on the most demanded professions during April-July 2011. They were unemployed youth from poor families aged 16-28, living in distant villages and areas affected by the ethnic conflict in the south of Kyrgyzstan in June 2010. The training was organized in by UNDP, UNICEF and UNHCHR within a joint project “Youth, Livelihood and Peace Promotion”, which was initiated in response to the crisis situation. The project was funded by the UN Peacebuilding Fund and the Government of the Russian Federation.

  • Pasture land in Sandyk can accommodate over 28,000 heads of livestock, however, poor road conditions and deteriorated infrastructure made it extremely difficult to access for many farmers in the Suusamyr valley and Chui province. Mr. Isabekov was the only farmer using it until recently, when he decided that the risk of taking his livestock there for the summer was too high.

  • Farmers in the largest pasture valleys in Kyrgyzstan organize into traditional groups, jamaats, to better manage lands and resources.
