The portfolio of Crisis Prevention and Recovery within UNDP Tajikistan includes two major directions of work: disaster risk management and mine action.
Since 2003, UNDP’s Disaster Risk Management Programme has been supporting the Government of Tajikistan in reducing the impact of natural disasters on vulnerable communities by strengthening national capacity to reduce risks, prevent, coordinate, respond and recover from disasters.UNDP’s efforts are focused on promotion, policy development, planning and system development of disaster risk reduction and its integration into development and climate risk management at national and local levels.
Tajikistan’s internationally supported mine action programme began during the second half of 2003. UNDP is the main long-term supporter of the Tajikistan Mine Action Centre (TMAC). UNDP/TMAC provides leadership in management, coordination, accreditation, planning and tasking, quality management, information management as well as monitoring and evaluation of all components (Mine Risk Education, Victim Assistance, Land Release, stockpile destruction and advocacy) of mine action programme in country.
