Sustainable management of water resources

image of Sustainable management of water resources

Tajikistan has abundant water resources. However, due to institutional weaknesses as well as inadequate funding and outdated infrastructure in the water sector, there are multiple challenges in the use and protection of water resources. Only some 60 per cent of the population has access to safe drinking water, and there are frequent outbreaks of water-borne diseases, creating severe human health risks. The functioning of the water supply and sewage systems is, moreover, frequently interrupted by power outages, which is also a source of water contamination. Over 90 per cent of water is used in irrigated agriculture and water losses in irrigation are high, comprising at least 40 per cent.
