Join New Gardener, Zulfiya Tursinova to discuss, and learn more about Women’s livelihoods, agricultural reforms, and the environment in post-Soviet Uzbekistan.

The transition from a Soviet centrally planned to a market-oriented economy posed new opportunities but also limitations in Central Asia since the collapse of the Soviet Union at the beginning of 1990’s.

Climate change constrained women’s choices to plant specific crops such as cotton, wheat and rice and gain income from harvest, especially in the ecologically devastated areas such as Aral Sea. Many women used their knowledge of seeds, markets, and economic powers to strengthen their livelihood resources, to maximize profit, and improve their well-being. Women became the purveyors of food security as they built a solution to the new post-communist reality by building greenhouses, participating in social and economic networks, planting, and planning harvesting to take advantage of market conditions.
