To increase agricultural production, USAID trains farmers in modern technologies and management of water and irrigation networks. USAID also supports companies working on food processing, packaging, and marketing. Agricultural production assistance has already benefited 281,000 people (5 percent of the country’s farmers). USAID-supported members of 52 water users associations and four federations now have increased capacity to prepare and implement water distribution plans.
In the energy sector, USAID assists with regulatory and institutional requirements and helps reduce operational and management inefficiencies, with the ultimate objective of closer economic integration among Central Asian Republics and between Central and South Asia.
To facilitate regional trade and Tajikistan’s accession to the World Trade Organization, USAID helps reduce trade barriers, introduce a customs automation processing system, and expand access to market information. Assistance also aims to improve the handling of budgetary and macroeconomic issues, tax administration, monetary policy, and banking supervision. Other programs help to increase the capacity of the government to introduce progressive land legislation and policies and to implement land reforms.
