Tajiks benefit from WB aid – Central Asia Online

DUSHANBE – World Bank (WB) aid has benefitted Tajik farmers, electricity consumers and patients, the WB said in three April 16 statements.

More than 34,000 farmers have received land use certificates enabling them to “use their land to their advantage,” the WB said, describing the World Bank-funded Land Registration and Cadastre System Project. Farmers receive advice and can more easily form Water User Associations “that organize themselves according to new land use patterns and then receive grants for rehabilitation of their on-farm irrigation systems,” the WB said.

The WB, co-operating with the Tajik government and Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development, also helped create the Pamir Energy Company, which operates a renovated power plant. The new utility provides “an almost uninterrupted power supply” to residents of Gorno-Badakhshan. It also exports some power to northern Afghanistan.
