Tajikistan is subject to a range of disasters, including earthquakes, floods, mudflows, avalanches, drought, and epidemics. Between 1997 and 2011, losses related to disasters exceeded $US 353 million. Given the impact of disasters on the lives of the population and the development of Tajikistan, UNDP Tajikistan has been supporting the Government of Tajikistan in building capacities to manage risks at the national and local levels since 2003. Key capacity building activities over the last decade have focused on information management and analysis, search and rescue, and improving and expanding disaster risk management training for government officials and in the education system.
