The Project for the Support for Joint Forest Management in the Kyrgyz Republic



Pilot Projects » Kegety pilot JFM (Chui state, 2009)

  • Background and summary of activities

From the Soviet era, a reforestation project with a focus on softwood such as pine and spruce is performed, and exceeds 500ha of plantation area has been established in the Kegety National Forests by the Chui forest office. A population’s mortality of Pinus Sylvestris occurred in this artificial plantation in 2009. For prevention of expanding damage and appropriate dead wood processing became an urgent task. Rich water, Kegety river rapids flowing through the national forests to provide valuable irrigation water to the people, however the water often flooded and erosion in the lower basin such as farmland and residential land which has threatened the residents. In addition, existed a beautiful waterfall in the national forest becomes a scenic spot, and many tourists have visited from Bishkek during the summer. The forest office has been in trouble of the waste processing which tourists bring, and the forest fire prevention. The project set the plantation along the Kegety river and a small village adjacent to the downstream as the target area of JFM pilot. The project has initiated the comprehensive watershed conservation through various activities such as the tree planting by residents, pine disease damage control, simple flood-control construction, and environmental education etc.

Flood control, and tree planting activities by forest tenant For arable lands of the small village adjacent to the downstream, the artificial agriculture plantations had significantly reduced because Kegeti river flooding occurred in recent years and the riverbank was washed away. The project constructed a dike along the Kegeti river and renovated the road in 2010 for protect this village from the threat of flooding. The result of this simple flood-control construction, new plantation land has been secured between the Kegety river and the village. The residents of the settlements become forest tenant, and the tree planting began in this place from 2011. New plantation area by local residents fulfills the function of the basin flood mitigation and residents will expect an income from timber and orchards

  • Support of damage control of pine disease and charcoal activity

The population dead of Scots Pine occurred in the Kegety National Forests in 2009. Initially, the damage was concerned a pine bark beetle (Bursaphelenchus xylophilus) which due to severe damage to pine forest of Japan, and the project investigate the phenomena cooperated with the Japanese Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute. As the result, that fact wasn’t confirmed. However, it is obvious that the long-horned beetle or bark beetle Occurrence the cause of large amounts of population death. Appropriate action of exposed dead wood by pest damage was an urgent issue. Then the project focused on the charcoal making for damaged trees for the way of incineration process. The project was seek to improve the livelihood for incineration of damaged trees and produced by charcoal as unfamiliar technology in Kyrgyzstan.
