|Description||The efficient and effective transport sector operation will support poverty reduction, sustainable economic growth, and national integration. The TA will define clear priorities and bring efficiency in transport sector operation in Tajikistan. The TA will continue ADB's involvement in ongoing policy dialogue with the Government and address transport sector issues.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||Reconstruction and improvement of the transport system and primarily its predominant highway infrastructure network is a priority for Tajikistan, much of which had been severely destroyed at estimated cost of $7 billion during the recent years of civil war. Till recent years, the IFI s intervention in transport sector mainly focused on restoring critical regional transport links, while preserving the existing infrastructure was not given due attention. It is however necessary to lay down a structured and comprehensive masterplan for development of the sector which will target efficient allocation of available resources and improve governance.|
