"Handspun Yarn from Kazakhstan: Improving Livelihoods of Pastoral Women"

The smallholders of Central Asia are not well connected to markets, have few organizations that support their collective participation in markets, have little knowledge of upstream market activity and do not possess the technological capacity to participate in value-added products such as fine wools. The project brings a diverse array of talented scientists from the U.K. and the U.S. to conduct research on market behavior and build the capacity of smallholders to address the problems that limit their market participation.
