The Sweet Dreams: Assessing opportunities and threats in Kazakhstan’s wild liquorice root trade

This report was completed under a project implemented between 2019-2022 by TRAFFIC and the Association for the Conservation of Biodiversity of Kazakhstan (ACBK), under the support of the Keidanren Nature Conservation Fund (KNCF). Complementary funds were also gratefully received from Aktionsgemeinschaft Artenschutz (AGA) e.V. The project aims to reduce unsustainable commercial harvest, which poses a threat to biodiversity conservation, and to scale up successful sustainable wild liquorice root production from which local people and nature benefit. We extend our thanks to KNCF for their support.
