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 and still favor 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 number.

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