The Apple Park and Wheat Park, Tajikistan. Case study guidance on biocultural heritage territories
The International Network for Mountain Indigenous Peoples (INMIP) brings together mountain indigenous peoples, research organisations and NGOs from Bhutan, China, India, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Papua New Guinea, Peru, the Philippines, Taiwan, Tajikistan, and Thailand. It aims to revitalise biocultural heritage for resilient food systems and sustainable mountain development, guided by indigenous holistic cosmovision.
This case study tells the story of two biocultural heritage territories that have been established in Tajikistan after visits to the Potato Park in Peru: the Apple Park in the Rasht Valley and the Wheat Park in the Pamir mountains.
