According to experts, overuse of pastures, like undergrazing, is undesirable. Therefore, it is important that drinking wells for livestock are distributed evenly throughout the area.
However, many wells and wells in desert and semi-desert pastures fail over time, and their restoration is a rather complicated and costly process.
The FAO / GEF Regional Project “Integrated Natural Resource Management in Drought-Prone Saline Agricultural Production Landscapes of Central Asia and Turkey” (CACILM-2) helped to renovate a well located near the village of Takham, Guzar district, Kashkadarya region, which was a great support for local livestock breeders.
The population of the village “Takham” is about 1.5 thousand people. The arid climate has made livestock the only source of income for the local population.
