ISDS provides local communities with support in preserving traditional ecological knowledge and heritage (traditions, customs, values) by increasing their capacities and skills, as well as by developing and promoting a network of local communities in Central Asia (“Nasyat” Network for Biocultural Diversity) for exchange of experiences and best practices. Currently, Nasyat network includes more than 60 NGOs and community-based organizations, as well as custodians of traditional knowledge and community-based organizations. “Nasiyat” closely cooperates with more than 16 rural municipalities, including 51 villages in Issyk-Kul, Naryn, Chui and Jalal-Abad provinces.

The mission of the network is to unite the efforts and potential of its members and partners to achieve sustainable development through the conservation and promotion of biological and cultural diversity (BCD) in the Central Asian region.
