New Book: Transitioning to Sustainable Life on Land

Please check the new MDPI open access book Transitioning to Sustainable Life on Land edited by Prof. Dr. Volker Beckmann. Fifteen outstanding contributions reflect on the political, economic, and societal transformations needed to achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 15, which calls for the protection, restoration, and promotion of sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems.


Final workshop BMBF-project IliLive October 07th to 08th 2021

The objective of the BMBF-project “Livestock farming in the Ili-Delta under varied water flow - effects on food security and adaption strategies” (Ili-Live) is an assessment of threats to livestock farming systems and, therefore, to the food security in the Ili-Delta under varying water inflow. The research project aims to develop appropriate measures in the field of water, pasture and fodder management at operational, local as well as regional level to reduce these threats.

The project started in November 2018. After the kick-off workshop in February at Al-Farabi Kazakh National University (www.kaznu.kz) in Almaty, extensive fieldwork was carried out in the Ili Delta as the main study area and in the Amu Darya Delta as a comparative region during the summer 2019. Next to experienced researchers, we integrated junior scientists as well as bachelor and master students from University of Greifswald, Al-Farabi University, and Kazakh National Agrarian University. Unfortunately, the project stopped due to the corona restrictions in the following year 2020. The last face-to-face meeting of the project consortium was at the mid-term workshop at the University of Greifswald in October 2019. Planned study visits of Kazakh Matser students and young scientists, and fieldwork in the delta regions could not take place or had to be organized differently. Fortunately, our project partners were able to complete investigations and data collections in the delta regions during the summer of 2021.

In October 2021, the final workshop took place digitally as a Zoom event with an international audience. On the first day, the project team presented research results. Then, Prof. Martin Petrick from the University of Giessen opened the second day with a keynote speech on questions about livestock in Kazakhstan. Following recommendations for the water, pasture, and fodder management at the local and regional level were discussed by the participants, including Ardakuly Aibar (Chief specialist, Agricultural Department Balkhash district), Vladimir Levin (Director NGO Farmer of Kazakhstan Foundation), Alexander Barnewirtz (Team leader German-Kazkah Dialogue on Agricultural Policy), and many more.

The event concluded with a networking session. Scientists, as Prof. Sabir Nurtazin (Al-Farabi University), Prof. Kristina Toderich (ICBA-CAC), Dr. Sarah Robinson (University of Giessen), Dr. Nodir Djanbekov (IAMO), Makhmud Shaumarov (FAO), and Rustam Murzakhanov (Succow Foundation) gave a speech on their current and planned research projects and activities. Overall, it was a successful project completion.

We would like to thank the participants for their valuable contributions and interesting discussions!

Furthermore, we would like to thank our project partners Prof. Sabir Nurtazin, Al-Farabi University, Prof. Kuat Nurgazy, Kazakh Agricultural University, Prof. Kristina Toderich, International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA-CAC), Dr. Niels Thevs, Agroforestry Center, and the business collaborate Merigali Kassymbekov for fruitful cooperation over many years.
