Opportunities and challenges for Sustainable Agriculture: A case study of Permaculture Initiatives with Nuraiym Syrgak, Simone de Boer and Gustaf Sörnmo.

In recent years, environmentally friendly forms of agriculture are gaining popularity in Kyrgyzstan. In this presentation we explore the environmental, socio-cultural, economic and political context of this development and discuss some of the opportunities and challenges farmers and other actors in Kyrgyzstan experience, while transitioning to (more) sustainable agricultural practices. In particular, we will focus on how permaculture initiatives is spreading rapidly in the region as a way to deal with food sovereignty, climate adaptation, sustainable livelihoods, among other things.
