August 17, 2010—Farmers who once relied on food aid, and were too poor to buy seeds, are once again farming remote parts of Tajikistan.

Ten years ago, the Red River watershed and its people were ravaged by a brutal civil war and the collapse of the Soviet agrarian system.Today trees, bees and livestock are raised again, thanks in part to a project supported by the World Bank that aims to help farmers—working in groups–to produce more and earn more while rehabilitating the ecosystem.
