Description The PPTA shall design a food security investment project through climate resilient dairy value chain development.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Tajikistan has a highest level of food insecurity and is one of the most affected by climate change among the central Asian countries. This dual challenge is interlinked as inability to address one challenge will have adverse impacts on the other. These challenges have commanded priority attention in the Tajikistan government's National Development Strategy 2016-2030 and the medium-term Development Strategy 2016-2020. The provision of integrated support for food security and climate change is priority objective of ADB's country partnership strategy (CPS) for Tajikistan, 2016-2020. For agriculture and natural resources sector development, CPS proposes a two-pronged strategy consisting of (I) improvements in agricultural productivity through adoption of climate smart technologies, and (ii) development of agricultural value chain to link farmers to markets.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design
During Project Implementation

1. Participatory approaches and project activities. During the project preparation, a comprehensive consultation process was followed to gauge and reflect the needs and priorities of different stakeholders. Such consultations included household survey; focus group discussions at the village and jamoat (community) levels; and consultations at the district, provincial, and national levels. Key stakeholders consulted include senior officials from the Ministry of Agriculture and across other ministries and their line agencies at provincial and district levels. The key development partners based in Dushanbe were actively engaged with farmers (men and women) and dairy value chain stakeholders. During the implementation, subproject identification would be undertaken in a highly participatory manner. Awareness about project activities will be raised among the poor and vulnerable segments and eligibility criteria with regards to inclusiveness of households will be strictly complied with. The project will mobilize and organize household dairy farmers, dehkan farms, and pasture users; and raise awareness through dissemination of information to ensure inclusivism and improved governance within the dairy value chain.

2. Civil society organizations. International and national civil society organizations (CSOs) were actively consulted during project preparation. Their active participation in these key consultation processes contributed to the development of design features that would more effectively link household producers to outlets for their produce. During key informant discussions, surveys, and focus group discussions, at households, jamoat, and district levels, various associations and committees such as farmers' associations, pasture users' committees, pasture user unions, pasture network and the veterinary association of Tajikistan were actively consulted. The project provides opportunities for CSOs to continue with their active participation during project implementation, availing capacity building opportunities, and being key players in social and community development.
