National Human Development Report 2012. Tajikistan: Poverty in the Context of Climate Change.
In future, the vulnerability of the Republic of Tajikistan will be determined by the resolution of the poverty problem and developing sensitivity to climate change impacts. Vulnerability of human security systems and a lack of adaptation to the current climate change can already be observed. To a large extent, this is due to the combination of social and economic factors and the inefficiency of monitoring systems for making informed environmental management decisions, as well as a lack of sound use of natural resources and long-term implementation of environment protection measures.
