With some of the world’s highest mountains covering 93% of its territory, Tajikistan faces obvious obstacles to its development. These include food insecurity, limited transport connectivity, and low levels of private investment. Due to its narrow economic base and reliance on remittances by labor migrants, Tajikistan’s economy remains vulnerable to external shocks.
ADB has partnered with Tajikistan since 1998. The bank’s country partnership strategy, 2016–2020 emphasizes widening Tajikistan’s economic base by exploring the country’s domestic and international competitive advantages, and improving its investment climate to create jobs with higher incomes. Achieving these objectives requires Tajikistan to improve its transport, energy, and municipal infrastructure. It also means upgrading the skills of the labor force and improving food security, including climate change mitigation and adaptation.
Since 1998, ADB has committed 44 grants ($1.309 billion), 28 loans ($498.38 million), and 86 technical assistance projects ($60.9 million) for Tajikistan.
Some of the world’s highest mountains cover 93% of Tajikistan's territory. With ADB support, over 700 kilometers of Tajikistan’s roads have been improved, creating international trade links and bringing social services to the country’s people.
