The strategic objective of the country partnership strategy (CPS), 2016–2020 of ADB for Tajikistan is to help the government achieve sustained and inclusive growth that is less susceptible to external shocks and create higher-paying jobs.
Three pathways are proposed to achieve this:
- continue infrastructure investments in energy and transport where ADB has had a lead role and initiate support for integrated urban development;
- sequence investment climate reforms, technical and vocational education and training (TVET), backed with knowledge work focusing on economic diversification; and
- integrate food security with value-chain development, water resources management, and climate change adaptation targeting poorer regions (oblasts).
The Tajikistan country operations business plan (COBP) for 2017–2019 aligns with the country partnership strategy (CPS) for 2016–2020. The COBP also supports the government’s long-term national-development strategy for 2016–2030.
The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.
The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.
