An Analysis of Farmers Preferences for Different Land Use Options in Northern Tajikistan

A Choice Experiment Approach


Manuchehr Goibov

This book presents the outcome of research concerning farmers’ preferences for different agricultural land use and agri-environmental attributes in the northern part of Tajikistan. The study was carried out within the DAAD-funded CLINCA (Climate Change Network for Central Asia) project. The results of this study reveal the existence of preference heterogeneity amongst farmers in the study area, showing that a decision for land allocation under different crops is jointly associated with other socio-economic and environmental factors.
Contents: Overview of agricultural sector in Tajikistan – Background on economic valuation methods – Overview of non-monetary environmental valuation techniques.
