Results of ADB-supported Operations: Tajikistan

ADB's activities in Tajikistan focus on cost-effective solutions to achieve results for the population and improve the environment for investment. Specifically, ADB supports the country's efforts to improve energy security and supply as well as transport connectivity within the regional cooperation context, while irrigation and flood protection projects help increase agricultural productivity and raise the incomes of local communities.

By combining transport investments with trade facilitation initiatives, ADB has helped lay the foundations for an efficient transport and trade system. ADB has also supported the creation of a strong microfinance sector to provide the country's poor with access to financial products.

This country brief summarizes how the partnership between the Government of Tajikistan and ADB has contributed to the development of the country.

The table includes projects completed during the period, and funded by ADB's ordinary capital resources and/or the Asian Development Fund, cofinanciers, and the government. The outputs presented are limited to ADB's core sectors, as defined under Strategy 2020 and tracked through indicators in the ADB Results Framework. ADB monitors progress on these outputs in the annual Development Effectiveness Review. The numbers represent the sum of outputs and beneficiaries of individual projects. Therefore, the beneficiary numbers reported under education—teachers trained, and students benefitting from school improvement programs or direct support—include those who benefited from more than one project.

New households connected to electricity between 2004-2012: 51,600

The indicator is the number of new households connected to the grid. Only new household connections resulting from a project are counted; households already connected to the grid and receiving improved services through a project are not counted. The number of new household connections resulting from a project is counted in total and not proportional to the ADB funding component only. The guiding principle is that ADB assistance is integral to the completion of the entire project; without the ADB assistance, the total target household connections would not be attained.
