Webinar: Pasture in Kyrgyzstan - remote sensing and climate policy

16:00 - 16:30 CEST

Over half of Kyrgyzstan’s total land area serves as pasture for its 1.7 million cattle and 6.3 million sheep and goats. Many pastures are subject to degradation caused by overgrazing and exacerbated by climate change.

This study compared the average pasture conditions of 2000-2004 and 2016-2020 using Landsat-based spectral indices and a digital elevation model. The remote sensing analysis took pasture types, grazing periods, altitudes, and a dataset with field measurements into account.

Results show that pasture conditions at the beginning of the century were better than in the last five years.
