Assessment of Development Results - Tajikistan

image of Assessment of Development Results - Tajikistan
This publication assesses UNDP contributions in Tajikistan between 2001 and 2008. The findings and recommendations of the ADR are intended to inform the preparation of the next country programme. The purpose of the ADR is to assist UNDP in continuing to build on its strengths and enhance its contribution to national development results. It provides an independent assessment of the progress, or lack thereof, towards the expected outcomes; highlights unexpected outcomes and missed opportunities; and presents key findings, lessons, and a set of clear and forward-looking options for management to make adjustments in the current strategy and next country programme.




Tajikistan is the poorest among the countries of the former Republics of the Soviet Union and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). A large section of the population in Tajikistan was directly affected by the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991 and the subsequent civil war. While the country returned to peace and political stabilization in the late 1990s, the transition to development poses several challenges. Development challenges include: post-war reconstruction, targeted assistance to the poor and reducing poverty, generating employment, and strengthening public institutions and governance.
