$10m to build climate resilience in Tajikistan

$10m to build climate resilience in Tajikistan

Tajikistan is receiving a $10 million (£7m) investment to build climate resilience in the country.

The fund aims to help households, businesses and farmers cope with the effects of climate change and support the country’s transition towards a greener economy.

The money comes from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and Climate Investment Funds.

Technical advice will also be given to support the adoption of technologies and practices that reduce soil erosion and pressure on water and energy resources.

Tajikistan is among the most climate-vulnerable countries in the EBRD’s region, the bank stated.

The country depends heavily on rainfall and snowmelt from its mountains, both for water and electricity, it added.
