Saving mountain pastures in Azerbaijan

Uncontrolled grazing is leading to soil degradation and desertification in the mountains of north-western Azerbaijan, and soon the pastures on which local farms are so dependent will have disappeared. Now, the EU-funded Clima East project has linked up with local communities to stop the soil erosion and give the landscape a chance to recover, while maintaining local livelihoods. For its latest feature story, the EU Neighbours East project travelled to the foothills of the Greater Caucasus to meet the activists hoping to save the mountain pastures of Azerbaijan.
As part of its efforts, Clima East is fencing off areas of pasture and planting it with endemic species to restore the soil, while introducing a rotational grazing system to allow the mountainside to ‘rest’. It is also helping farmers to develop alternative activities that will bring them extra income away from livestock grazing.
The Clima East project is implemented by the European Union in all six Eastern Partnership countries - Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus. The project helps countries in the region to apply effective approaches to reduce the adverse effects of climate change and enhance adaptation to it.
