    By creating a land commission, the Kazakh authorities managed to bring down the protest rallies in 2016, when, under pressure from citizens, the government was forced to abandon the sale and lease of land to foreigners.

    • Pourtant, les terrains de pâturage extensifs, que les éleveurs appellent kijana, existent dans un vide juridique : légalement, ils ne sont ni terres de propriétés non titrées, ni terres à statuts spécifiques.

The primary driver of deforestation is agribusiness, with palm oil a chief culprit.
