Legal assistance for Kyrgyz farmers: More law – less poverty

01.01.2011 - 31.12.2014

Thanks to land reform, many Kyrgyz farmers have their own, albeit small, piece of land. To be able to subsist from agriculture, farmers lease and buy additional land. This leads to legal disputes regarding access to water and mountain pastureland. The local non-governmental organisation "Legal Assistance for Rural Citizens" (LARC) helps farmers and other rural groups to claim and protect their rights.
