Tajikistan and ADB
Building on 25 years of its trusted partnership with the country, ADB helps Tajikistan progress toward inclusive, green, and resilient development
ADB has launched a new initiative to better understand and invest in adaptation to the impacts of heat stress on women and girls across Asia and the Pacific.
Tajikistan is among the countries with a very high exposure to climate and disaster risks. Around 400 climate-induced incidents (such as avalanches, mudflows, landslides, and flash floods) happen yearly in the country, severely affecting people and the economy.
No country can fight climate change alone. The countries of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) program should take coordinated action to combat the increasing impacts of climate change and find sustainable solutions.
The ability of the economies of the Caucasus and Central Asia to effectively respond to external shocks critically depends on their cooperation in diversifying trade and transport routes. The right policies and development of the Middle Corridor is a key to success.
