Carbon Sequestration through Climate Investment in Forests and Rangelands in Kyrgyz Republic (CS-FOR)

Carbon Sequestration through Climate Investment in Forests and Rangelands in Kyrgyz Republic (CS-FOR)

Increasing carbon sequestration in Kyrgyzstan by supporting climate investments in forests and rangelands.

In Kyrgyzstan, livestock is the most important source of income, the primary source of nutrition, and a financial safety net for the rural poor. Climate change and the poor management of natural resources has led to overgrazing, increased forest degradation, and the unsustainable harvesting of timber from mountain slopes.

This project will reduce the drivers of land degradation and the emissions this causes by supporting national institutions, the participatory and ecosystem-based sustainable management of natural resources and green growth investments. This will include introducing integrated rangeland and forestry resource planning - which sequesters carbon and supports the diversification of activities generating household incomes.
