1st Environmental Performance Review of Tajikistan

Published: December 2004

This is the first EPR of Tajikistan published by ECE. The report covers twelve issues of importance to Tajikistan, concerning the framework for environmental policy, management of pollution and natural resources and economic and sectoral integration. Among the issues receiving special attention during the reviews were poverty, environment and economy; the policy, legal and institutional framework; environmental expenditures and privatisation; information, public participation and education; management of air, water and waste; agriculture; biodiversity; and eco-tourism. Since the end of its five-year civil war in 1997, Tajikistan has been rebuilding its institutions, legal framework and its economy. Considerable attention has been given to reducing poverty, raising environmental awareness among the population, halting land degradation, protecting biodiversity and reducing energy consumption, among others.   

UNECE would also like to express its deep appreciation to the Governments of Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom for their support to the Environmental Performance Review Programme, to the European Centre for Environment and Health of the World Health Organization for its participation in the Review, and to the United Nations Development Programme, the World Bank and WHO for their contributions to the work in Tajikistan and the preparation of this report.
