lntegrated Health and Habitat lmprovement in the Rasht Valley, Tajikistan


Direction du Développement de la Coopération (Suisse)

Titre : lntegrated Health and Habitat lmprovement in the Rasht Valley, Tajikistan

Pays/Région : Tajikistan

Durée : 01.01.2018 - 31.12.2021

Through the project the population living in one of the poorest and fragile regions of Tajikistan (Rasht Valley) will gain access to basic social services (water and health). The interventions in the selected watersheds will empower the local communities enabling their active participation in decision-making and effective management of the resources. As a result, people in the project area will adopt healthier, more environmentally sustainable, and disaster-safer behaviours.

Projet en bref
* Contexte : Rasht Valley is located in the north-eastern part of Tajikistan - a region prone to disasters, which was afflicted by political instability and insecurity in the last decades. Less than 45% of the local communities have access to safe drinking water ; hygiene and sanitation conditions are below standards in most of the places. With only 2% of GDP spent on healthcare the central government is not capable to provide good quality healthcare services in country’s remote areas ; in many places primary health care facilities are in poor condition or inexistent. Poor management of natural resources, use of outdated agriculture/irrigation techniques, pressure by growing population, land degradation and deforestation are increasing natural risks, specifically those related to water.
* Objectifs  : People benefit from basic public services in a peaceful and equitable society allowing them to improve their quality of life.
* Groupes cibles  : The project will serve the development of the entire Rasht Valley (451 ’400 people) with the project sites selected in all seven districts of the Valley (Fayzobod, Rogun, Nurobod, Rasht, Tojikobod, Lakhsh, and Sangvor). More than 120’000 people in 140 villages (14 target sub-watersheds) will directly benefit from safe drinking water supply, improved sanitation, health care, NRM/DRR projects, while investments in valley-wide health services will cover indirectly 322’000 people.

Budget de la Suisse  : CHF 7’050’000
