  • Overgrazing


Study site stakeholder workshops

  • Extension service providers

Added value of DESIRE for stakeholders
Stakeholders in the Dzanybek are interested and eager to cooperate and try new technologies. Stakeholders deeply trust the Volkzy research institute.


Alternative technologies:
1)    green manure
2)    drainage
3)    drip irrigation
4)    licorice cultivation


Limitations for spontaneous implementation of soil and water conservation practices
Drip irrigation is not yet applied because of investment costs.


Stakeholder groups

  • Administration of Pallasovsky region.
  • Administration of Romashki village
  • Department of Hydrogeology and Land Reclamation
  • Farm «Romashkovskii». Large farm, leading in sheep breeding, growing of cereals, vegetables and forage. The activities of this farm are influencing the soil and water resources of the area. Overgrazing has become a big problem for the surrounding areas; however, it is a provider of employment for the local people.
  • Small farmholders.
  • Holders of small vegetable gardens. Almost each family in the village is growing at their garden vegetables for own use.


Sustainability goals

The proposed goals can be used as a starting point for a community to develop their own vision and goals for sustainable agriculture management. The list of sustainable agricultural management goals that were developed by other communities and organizations has been useful for this work package. The table shows the sustainability goals that were identified for both the Dzhanybek and Novy study sites.
