The EU Country Strategy Paper for Tajikistan foresees a deepening of the EU existing focus on rural development and a provision of 59 million Euros under RDP phase II for Tajikistan rural areas. Building on its past experiences and taking into account other donors’ complementary activities, the European Union for 2021-2026 will continue aiming at poverty reduction and wealth creation in rural communities, the improvement of the quality of life, living standards and food security of people, as well as the protection and efficient use of natural resources.

The EU programme will build on the natural resources management actions started under RDP I along with Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) actions, previously supported by the European Commission Humanitarian Office (ECHO) and currently integrated in the EU Regional programmes. This will be done by strengthening inclusive community participation in planning, management and protection of natural resources in line with the Forest and Pasture laws devolving power to the communities and local government. The programme will support the use of sustainable and climate-smart agricultural practices to improve livelihood in rural areas, by promoting sustainable agriculture and improving management of natural resources.

The EU RDP II has three interrelated components (please see the details in the annex M):
