In South-Kyrgyzstan, the branches of Juniper trees  arecommonly used by the local population to clean the  airin the yurta and protect the family against the bad eye.
 :What it is JUMP is a project funded by the European Union aiming atthe introduction of integrated managementplans intheJuniper forests of South Kyrgyzstan (amountainous country in Central Asia, former USSR). TheJuniper (Artcha inKyrgyz language) forests of South Kyrgyzstan constitute a specific ecosystem, with full high forests facing difficulties in regeneration due to a particularly hard ecological (high altitude, dryness) and socio-economic (pressure from the local users for fuelwood collection and grazing) context. Overcoming these constraints to local development requires special JUMP :d management techniques and procedures, which are to be introduced step by step with the assistance of applied research.

 :What it does During the year 2004, the activities of JUMP include: Criteria and Indicators Definition of a set of criteria and indicators (C&I) for a sound management of theJuniperby the forest service and the forests local population, fixing the framework conditions for management, and linking technical norms derived from expertise with social requirements by users for a local development perspective. Inventory of the resource Description of the potential of the whole ecosystem, including forest stands and pasture lands, using modern techniques (remote sensing based on satellite imagery) and methodologies (forest typology and land use stratification, plots analysis based on complementary field measurements). Ecological and socio-economic context Identification of the main ecological and socio-economic factors influencingJuniperforests development and management, with a special focus at regeneration constraints, pest control, economic balance of the territorial forest management units(State forest enterprises)and local needs for pasture and fuelwood by the population. Capacity building In-service training of the forest service staff, and education of forest engineers with emphasis on multifunctional management techniques (including communication skills), basing on the conditions of South Kyrgyzstan .
