UNDP’s goal is to support the Government of Tajikistan in the coordination of development initiatives, the public finance management, the delivery of core public services and the planning and decision-making. UNDP’s objectives and programming are aligned to development priorities as articulated in the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), UNDP Country Development Programme for 2016-2020 that directly addresses the country priorities reflected in the National Development Strategy (NDS) 2016-2030 and the Midterm Development Programme (MTDP) 2016-2020. It is in full alignment with the development of the UNDAF 2016-2020 and linked with the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.
The UNDAF for Tajikistan focus on four strategic areas that respond to country development needs and make use of the United Nations’ comparative advantages. These were identified through an intensive consultation process with authorities in Tajikistan and Implementing Partners: (1) Democratic Governance, Rule of Law, and Human Rights (2) Sustainable and equitable economic development, (3) Social Development, Inclusion and Empowerment and (4) Resilience and Environmental Sustainability.
In order to strengthen the rule of law, promote human rights and freedoms, protect the environment and support economic and social reforms for social inclusion and an equitable society, UNDP strives to enhance good governance as well as social and economic growth. To this end, the UN and its partners focus on capacity-development to enhance livelihood and economic development programmes, with a emphasis on the rural population, women and marginalized people.
UNDP's interventions in Tajikistan are helping to enhance the country's progress towards meeting its development agenda of sustainable and equitable growth.
