Develop and introduce MAAN: Know-how and networking



Establish Mountain Agroeco-systems Action network MAAN for knowledge and experience sharing at project target area

MAAN network for knowledge and experience sharing is created, however some technical challenges such as internet access and availability of equipment prevents the project to register RSPs in MAAN. Additionally, project workers are learning from Kirgiz colleagues how to register in MAAN correctly. As soon as challenges will be managed and learning process successfully finished, RSPs will be officially registered in MAAN and the project will inform about possibilities of the network, how to use it correctly, how to share experience, etc.

Select 30 RSPs and establish MAAN community around RSPs with 625 participants

On July 5, 2019 advertisement was announced at untj.orgto select RSPswith the purpose of delivering nutrition sensitive agriculture knowledge and practices to the project target groups. 37 applications were received (Rasht – 9, Nurobod – 6, Tojikobod– 9, Lakhsh–13. As a result of transparent selection process, 30 RSPs (25 main RSPs and 5 on reserve) were selected who will distribute knowledge among 747)households in the project target districts. RSPs represent different nutrition sectors, e.g. beekeeping, production of milk and milk products, animal breeding, plant growing, greenhouses, fruit and vegetable production, bread andgrain products, etc. 

Introduce web/mobile network among RSPs and community

RSPs are formed and informed about web/mobile network. Through trainings and awareness raising, RSPs and communities will be trained about their use. However, this activity requires additional investment on internetaccess and tools/ equipmentto enable quality information sharing and experience exchange. Hence, investment on tools and internet is planned next year.
