During the first week of COP26, the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH) joined the Governments of Tajikistan and Switzerland to discuss and align approaches that are building climate change resilience in the Pamir highlands, where mountain communities are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of global warming. AKAH is part of the official Tajik delegation to COP26 together with the Committee for Environmental Protection, Agency for Meteorology, Ministry of Energy and Water Resources, and other relevant agencies. AKAH Tajikistan CEO Mr. Hadi Husani said: “Tajikistan is among the states that have consistently pursued a strategy to reduce carbon emissions voluntarily and is interested in the world's best green practices, applying cost-effective, environmentally-friendly and socially inclusive technologies and solutions. AKAH, together with other international partners, will continue to help Tajikistan promote international environmental dialogue, exchange of information and knowledge to support science-based and climate-resilient decision-making.”
