Tajikistan Community Agriculture and Watershed Management: Results

Improving the Lives of People In ECA 
Tajikistan Community Agriculture and Watershed Management Project

Innovative partnership arrangements enabled 39 subdistrict committees, along with more than 2,300 groups of villagers, to manage over US$5 million in project financing in an accountable and transparent manner.

Rural production activities were replicated by over 160 additional farmers with their own resources. The International Fund For Agricultural Development-supported Khatlon Livelihoods Project also adopted CAWMP’s approach for village-driven priority setting, benefitting over 14,000 additional households.

Participatory planning helped villagers target the poorest and most vulnerable groups, such as single female-headed households and households with disabled adults. As a result, the number of people above the poverty line in participating villages increased from 3 percent in 2004 to 16 percent by early 2009, or by approximately 350,000 people.

Over 600 people received training in participatory environmental planning and grazing management. Preliminary data show improved sustainable management practices in use in over 50,000 ha.
