Environmental, non-profit, public organization, formed in 1997 by a group of young activists. The Little Earth has official registration and status as a national nature protection organization. It is a flexible and mobile organization with a creative approach to environmental issues.
To make people more susceptible to environmental issues and enhance their role and participation in sustainable development. We want to preserve for future generations what we love and admire - the unique nature of Tajikistan and our planet.
For nature and local communities
The Little Earth has many years of experience in implementing small-scale projects for the development of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, as well as the implementation of resource-saving technologies and practices for adaptation to climate change at the local community level.
By ensuring environmental sustainability, the Little Earth contributes to the development of communities as a whole. In addition to the technology itself, the organization mobilizes communities and helps build the capacity of local residents so that they can independently continue to use and develop the most suitable alternatives for them.
By addressing environmental issues, the Little Earth helps fight poverty and improves the quality of life of the most vulnerable groups of the population.
The Little Earth actively cooperates with green public and initiative groups, provides environmental information to the general public and promotes the involvement of public organizations in the decision-making process in the field of environmental protection.
The Little Earth is a member of the Mountain Partnership, CAN EECCA (Climate Action Network Eastern Europe Caucasus and Central Asia), the International Socio-Environmental Union, as well as a co-founder of the Tajikistan NGO Network on Climate Change.
