Mott MacDonald helps develop sustainable approach to reduce poverty in Tajikistan

Mott MacDonald in conjunction with ULG Northumbrian Limited has been appointed to assist on an Asian Development Bank-funded poverty alleviation project aimed at raising Tajikistan’s irrigated agricultural productivity in a sustainable way.

Tajikistan is one of the poorest countries in the world, where 83% of people live below the poverty line. It is hoped that the project will benefit the local community by raising farm productivity and rural household income as well as sustainably improving the environment through integrated assistance in rural infrastructure rehabilitation, institutional strengthening, improvement of agricultural production technologies and marketing. Knowledge sharing and consultation with local communities will be key success drivers of the project.

The project is intended to cover management of water resources, improved farm management and technologies, support to agricultural marketing and capacity building for proper operation, maintenance and repair of irrigation and rural infrastructure.

Mott MacDonald is specifically providing skills in water resources management, hydrology, water supply and sanitation and mechanical and electrical engineering

The study will be completed in August 2004.
