Monitoring-Trainings for rangers in the Zarafshan valley

Succow Foundation together with the local partners carried out biodiversity monitoring trainings in the protected areas in the Zarafshan Valley in Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.

The trainings with the similar content took place in Zarafshan National Park in Uzbekistan and the Zarafshan Zakaznik in Tajikistan. They included indoor and outdoor activities. Important part of the training was the introduction of camera-traps in the protected areas. Each of them got eight camera traps and now could make their monitoring more efficient.

The trainings gave a good ground for the development of biodiversity monitoring guidelines for the protected areas in Zarafshan valley. It will allow synchronizing of collection biodiversity data in the neighbouring protected areas.

The activities took place within the framework of the project “Strengthening transboundary nature conservation and sustainable land use in Central Asia” as part of the GIZ regional program “Integrated Land Use in Central Asia (ILUCA)”.
