Five communities from different valleys of the Pamirs imagine their futures (10 years) around the question: How can human well-being continue to improve while maintaining diversity and traditions?
Goal: To co-develop visions for the future in the Pamirs with diverse development actors, using traditional foods as a way to open up new conversations.
1. Test methodology of food ways (cooking together)
2. Joint visions for future development trajectories in the Pamirs, documented by a local artist (community keeps painting)
3. Uncovering what endogenous development patterns look like, and how they are similar to, or differ from, other development visions in the Pamirs.
