Policy brief: Low carbon and resilient livestock development in Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is a livestock country. A large part of the country’s land area serves as pasture for its 1.7 million cattle and 6.3 million sheep and goats.

Pastoral and agro-pastoral systems, if well managed, are the best-suited and adaptive form of agriculture for the majority of Kyrgyzstan’s land area that is too dry, cold, or mountainous for crop farming.
