Abstract
In many rural regions of developing countries, households are highly dependent on biomass fuels for basic energy needs such as cooking and heating. In the Autonomous Region Gorno-Badakhshan in Tajikistan, the rural population has no alternative but to use manure and the wood from the forests, especially for heating during the long winters. The influence of climate change combined with the overuse of natural resources exceeds the resilience of many ecosystems. At the same time, the resilience of households decreases due to inefficient use of biomass fuel in an environment with biomass deficit. This article highlights interventions to introduce energy efficient technologies in the region in order to reduce the pressure on natural resources and to improve the livelihood of rural households. The article discusses the impacts, albeit small at present, of such interventions on the resilience of communities and high mountain ecosystems and cold regions.
