UNDP’s Country Office in Tajikistan opened in 1994 and since then UNDP plays a crucial role in supporting the country’s reform efforts and the development of a national strategy for poverty alleviation.

UNDP Tajikistan works mainly in the following areas: Poverty Reduction and the Achievement of the MDGs, Democratic (Good) Governance, Crisis Prevention and Recovery, Environment and Sustainable Development and Reducing the Burden of HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis. The ultimate goal of UNDP is to improve the lives of the people of Tajikistan, especially the poorest and most vulnerable, and to ensure a future that offers equality, dignity and opportunity for all.

Together with the Government of Tajikistan, civil society and the people of Tajikistan UNDP works towards identifying local solutions to global and national development challenges. Our main focus is on reducing poverty and meeting the Millennium Development Goals, enhance accountability of the current governance system, mitigate the threats of natural disasters, contribute towards environmental sustainability and reduce the burden of diseases like HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis.

The priorities of UNDP and Tajikistan are addressed through a number of projects implemented in partnership with national counterparts, key donors, UN agencies and other international organizations, with a particular emphasis on sustainable development. Our main location is in Dushanbe, with Area offices in five of Tajikistan’s regions: Shaartuz, Kulyab, Ayni, Gharm and Khujand.
