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.
Our Association shares with its members a vision that: 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. This is our common vision and we will continually strive for it in the years to come. Our members have long experience of working with pasture users, and since the 2009 Law on Pastures, our members have gained considerable experience of pasture management and related issues under the new legal framework. As an association uniting our members, we are still young, and need to develop in many respects in order to meet our members’ needs and expectations.
In recognition of this, during the period of this first strategic plan (2016-2020), we have agreed the following achievable goal for all the activities of the organization: By 2020, our Association has become a strong and well-resourced organization, based on members with sustainable finance sources, who together and in collaboration with a wide range of partners are able to provide high-quality services to meet the needs of our members, and protect and promote the rights and interests of Pasture Users' Unions. In this strategic plan period, supporting Regional Associations of Pasture Users' Unions to identify and develop these revenue sources will be a key priority for our Association. Previously, it was considered that our Association could generate revenue from seed production. After the strategic planning process, this is considered as a key option for Regional Associations of Pasture Users' Unions. our Association will develop diverse, alternative revenue streams. The funding strategy is elaborated in the Business Plan for 2016-2020.
