AKF launches COVID-19 project to address food security in Tajikistan

6 August 2020

The Aga Khan Foundation, with the support of the Government of Switzerland, has successfully launched an emergency project aimed at reducing Tajikistan's vulnerability to COVID-19-related food insecurity in 12 districts of Khatlon province, Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Region, Sughd province and Rasht Valley of Tajikistan. The project aims to address limited access to agricultural products, low water and land productivity, lack of high quality seeds and fertilizers – all of which can exacerbate food insecurity, malnutrition and vulnerability to the virus.
