Tajikistan: National Disaster Risk Management Project (Additional Financing)

Sovereign Project | 52106-002

The additional financing will expand the scope and reinforce the outcome and outputs of the ongoing National Disaster Risk Management Project. This will be achieved by supporting persons displaced by disasters and enhancing the executing agency's technical and institutional capacities for strategic disaster risk management. The overall project will further enhance the disaster preparedness of the country against the projected heightened exposure to climate change.

The overall project will further enhance the disaster preparedness of the country against the projected heightened exposure to climate change.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Government of Tajikistan is facing immense challenges due to an increased number of displaced people in the country. This is mainly a consequence of (i) worsening external factors such as political instability and conflict, and (ii) an increase in natural hazards, exacerbated by climate change within Tajikistan. The Khatlon region, bordering Afghanistan, is the most populated region in Tajikistan. It has experienced around 200 natural hazards between 2010 to 2020, including extreme rain and snowfall followed by major flooding. Total economic losses amount to $1.8 billion in a 15-year period, affecting more than 7 million people. With rising temperatures and more frequent extreme weather events, this trend will worsen in the coming years. More people will be temporarily or permanently displaced.
Impact
