Climate resilience planning, Tajikistan

Mott MacDonald was appointed by the Asian Development Bank to carry out climate resilience planning and capacity building in Tajikistan.

Tajikistan is among countries most vulnerable to climate change, with worsening weather conditions, more frequent floods and droughts, increasing glacier melt, combined with already frequent earthquakes, landslides and avalanches. As nearly half of Central Asia’s water resources originate in the Tajikistan mountains, there are concerns that melting glaciers could eventually lead to water shortages across the entire region.

Our role as technical consultant involved assessing the vulnerability of Tajikistan’s water sector assets to climate impact. This included identifying and prioritising vulnerable communities, ecosystems and infrastructure.

We identified adaptation and mitigation measures for climate change, demonstrated ways to integrate climate risk and resilience into development planning and prepared sector-based hazard management investment plans.
