The coronavirus pandemic hit Tajikistan when its economy and livelihoods were already fragile following several economic disruptions in the past decade. The economic implications of the COVID-19 outbreak became apparent soon after the first cases were officially declared, and businesses and vulnerable population groups have been on the front lines ever since. The impact of the pandemic on lives and the health system has been unprecedented in Tajikistan’s post-civil war history. With individuals being furloughed or laid off completely, and businesses experiencing a significant decline in scale, sales and incomes, many people and entrepreneurs have been put under severe stress.

Technical report Tajikistan has implemented in recent years a number of policies and measures (PAMs)6 to mitigate climate change reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Assessing the impact of these measures, and additional PAMs that will be implemented in the future, is key for tracking progress of the achievement of national targets (i.e. NDC), facilitating policymaking and improving the understanding on the drivers of national GHG emissions. In this context, the Technical Report on GHG forecasting in key sectors and impact assessment of mitigation policies and measures (PAMs) aims at assessing the GHG emission reduction impact of national PAMs, projecting national GHG emissions to 2030 and developing different mitigation scenarios considering different development pathways and the implementation of different PAMs. Further, the report enables Tajikistan to assess its programs and measures implemented or planned that result in the mitigation of human-induced climate change and progress in achieving its NDC. This work also allows Tajikistan to identify additional mitigation alternatives that could be implemented in the country in the future, that could be considered in a potential review of the NDC.

As UNDP marks 25 years of work in Tajikistan, we thought it would be a good time to reﬂect on the achievements of the past quarter of a century assisting the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan in the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.<p></p> This anniversary also oﬀers an opportunity to identify persistent shortcomings and, as we look to the future and chart the path ahead, deﬁne ways to accelerate progress toward equal opportunities for women and men, in line with the objectives set in the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and the 1995 Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, which also celebrates its 25-year anniversary. <p></p> As this publication highlights, Tajikistan has taken important legislative steps over the years to reduce gender inequalities and ensure that women, girls, youth and people from marginalised groups have a voice and they can actively participate in building a sustainable future for the country.
