The programme is building on the positive experience of LMDP I and expanding the activities to increase livestock productivity in the regions of Issyk-Kul, Naryn Oblasts, Batken, Jalal-abad and Osh region of Osh to enhance climate resilience reflected in improved and equitable returns to livestock farmers, directly benefiting 304,000 households.
On land and natural resource governance, the programme provides support for legal and regulatory reforms as well as sustainable pasture management. It aims to collect pasture user fees and support boundary demarcation. One of the efforts was the support of the development of the new Pasture Law which provides the legal basis for community-based pasture management. The project supports the preparation of Community Pasture Management Plans (CPMPs) by Pasture Committees (PCs) which set out a five-year plan of pasture management, improvement and investment. The aim is to help achieve maximum pasture utilization rates based on improved methods of pasture health assessment and monitoring.
