Kazakhstan – June 4th, 2013

The ecosystem of Alakol Lake is located in unique natural and climatic conditions, which together with the favorable geographical location determine the attractiveness of this territory for a huge number of the globally valuable avifauna species. Main threats to the lake and its wetlands include uncontrolled poaching of water fowl and wild boars, which led to decline in the number of fauna species. Other threats include erosion, which needs to be prevented through introduction of sustainable water-saving irrigation technologies and training land users new alternative technologies, decreasing degradation processes in conditions of climate aridization.
