From December 2018, NBT launched the research project “Institutional change in land and labor relations of Central Asia’s irrigated agriculture (AGRICHANGE)”, funded by the Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Development in Transition Economies (IAMO). The aim of the project is a comprehensive survey of farms on the subject of land and labor relations.
On April 20, 2019 NBT successfully completed quantitative survey among farm households. In total, more than 900 farmers were interviewed in the Turkestan (Kazakhstan) and Samarkand (Uzbekistan) provinces. At the moment, the consultants are processing the received data and working on preparation of the final report.
