Infrastructure projects for peace and stability in Khorog, Tajikistan

All development programmes are designed to contribute to peace and stability in one way or another, but the Aga Khan Foundation’s (AKF) Critical Infrastructure to Contribute to Stability and Peace in Khorog (IcSP) programme focuses on improving public infrastructure and services. In the process, it hopes to strengthen confidence among inhabitants in local authorities while generating temporary employment opportunities through construction work.

Under the IcSP project, the Aga Khan Agency for Habitat (AKAH) is constructing six playgrounds/sports stadiums, a riverbank protection project in Sharifobod area, a water supply system for the Bizmich neighbourhood, and a new school in Saidmir Abdurahmonov Street. The construction of all projects, which started in October 2019, is to be completed by the end of March 2021.

On a recent visit, the AKDN’s Residential Representative to Tajikistan, Mr Qozidavlat Qoimdodov, remarked that “the work that is being done is great” but went on to say, “What is more important is that you made sure to use mainly local materials in the construction and worked with local specialists.”

In fact, for the construction works, AKAH contracted 18 local accredited design and construction companies, thereby providing jobs for over 350 people.

The IcSP project is funded by the European Union and is implemented by AKF, AKAH and the Mountain Societies Development Support Programme (MSDSP) in close partnership with the local government.
