The Aga Khan Foundation (AKF)’s rural development interventions in Tajikistan are implemented by the Mountain Societies Development Support Programme (MSDSP), which was established in 1993 to coordinate relief and humanitarian assistance in the wake of Tajikistan’s civil war. Initially focusing only in Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast (GBAO), the programme has now expanded to reach 32 of 54 districts in Tajikistan including the Rasht Valley, Sughd, and Khatlon, with a total beneficiary population of 1.4 million people.
