MDBP Economic Solutions

  • Through cooperation with the local community and cooperative leaders we connect our project and the placement of Bankhar with existing economic incentives that favor ecologically sustainable practices as well as economic benefits for the herders themselves.

  • We ask our herders to join incentive systems that ultimately diversify their income to shift their practices in a direction less deleterious to the ecosystem and more economically and ecologically sustainable.

  • We offer to facilitate changes in their herding practices to help diversify livestock holdings and decrease the total number of any single livestock species.

  • We plan to develop specific incentives in our program that herders can take part in to diversify their income and decrease reliance on cashmere markets etc.  These include hair fiber from dogs as a textile source, manufacturing of spiked collars to sell to other herders, etc.
