The mission then visited the border village of Somoniyon in Chorkuh municipality, which is adjacent to the Kyrgyz village of Koktash. Local residents, women and men, warmly welcomed the guests. During the conversation they highlighted the problems the community currently faces in its relations with its neighbors. They proposed projects aimed not only at resolving the existing problems but also contributing to the improvement of relations with their neighbors. The mission’s next meeting was with residents of Langari Bifotimai Zahro settlement of Chorkuh municipality. Residents gathered near a pump station which supplies irrigation water to their farmlands. Construction of the pump was supported by UNDP in 2015. This facility was built for the purposes of addressing the problem of water shortages and unauthorized access by the residents to a channel located in the territory of Kyrgyzstan. It is expected that UN agencies in Tajikistan will work on a number of similar initiatives in the framework of the current project supported by PBF/PBSO.
