Donor - GIZ

Client - BoDeN

Dates - April 12, 2018-May 31, 2018

  • Study the incidence of different pasture-user types for different regions, as part of a representative sample within Kakheti.
  • Collect data which can be used to calculate the distributional impacts of SLM scenarios for each pasture-user profile, as identified in the ‘evidence gap analysis’.
  • Establish the nature and intensity of livestock grazing within grasslands and meadows of Kakheti, to inform both the SLM scenario impacts and biomass modelling.
