National Pasture Users Association of Kyrgyzstan (Kyrgyz Jayity)
National pasture users’ Association of Kyrgyzstan “Kyrgyz Jayity” is a voluntary association of legal entities and a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the ability of pasture users, Pasture User Unions and Pasture Committees to effectively manage and use pasture resources.
Strong Pasture Users Unions and Pasture Committees, supported by all stakeholders, are able to effectively manage pastures and support improved livelihoods for pasture users throughout the Kyrgyz Republic.
Enactment of the 2009 Law on Pastures was a milestone in pasture management in the Kyrgyz Republic. Since then, pasture users have created 454 Pasture User Unions (PUUs) with pasture users as members, each with an executive body, the Jaiyt Committee (JC). PUU members and JCs, with support from other stakeholders, have done a great deal of work to improve the condition of pastures, repair livestock driveways, bridges and other infrastructure, and have made the greatest efforts possible to solve other problems preventing the effective, efficient and equitable use of pasture resources.See more
