ICCO in Tajikistan

Natural resources are water, hydropower and mining sectors which are all vulnerable to adverse weather conditions and natural disasters. Tajikistan faces energy shortages for several months in a year and periodically faces food security problems. Agriculture is the main livelihood of rural families, who produce food for their own consumption and for sale on urban markets. The country’s remote, landlocked location, together with deteriorating infrastructure, high input costs and weak regulation, poses serious barriers to international trade, connectivity and investment.

The coming years the focus will be on expansion and consolidation of the Fair Economic Development and food security programs.

The primary target groups are small farmers, women groups and rural entrepreneurs in relation to agricultural chain development.

What we do

In Tajikistan, ICCO primarily focuses on:

  • Disaster risk reduction – identifying, assessing and reducing the risks of disaster by providing technical support to local partners.
  • Food security and lobby – to advance food/nutrition related infrastructure such as potable water systems, processing facilities and improve improve food/nutrition policies and legislation.
  • Advocacy work to promote rights of migrants and persons with disabilities – lobbying and simplification of state registration system, influencing local decision-making and budgeting to respond to the needs of migrant-workers and their families as well as pre-departure awareness (on migration legislations, rights issues, access to basic services, etc.). Helping NGOs in their efforts to unite and create a single, effective civic coalition to cope with social exclusion of CwD, working to reduce the stigma of discrimination that is widespread in society.

Tajikistan general

Tajikistan is the poorest country in Central Asia. It has had political stability and economic growth since its civil war ended in 1997, but democratic space is limited. A large portion of the GDP depends on remittances and migration leaves sections of the rural areas virtually without able men.
