Scientific Backstopping related to the Weather, Water and Climate Services (WWCS) initiative for Increasing Resilience and Well-being of Rural Communities in Tajikistan

Start date
01 Jan 2021
End date
31 May 2025
To provide scientific backstopping in the development of methodologies and protocols for tracking outcomes envisioned within the WWCS initiative. This thematic focus and multi-stakeholder approach embody a level of complexity that necessitates the engagement of novel scientific, government and business partners. Caritas Switzerland has initiated and explores partnerships with Swiss and international organizations to support related Tajik line ministries and governmental agencies in addressing the many challenges that are inherent to an informed and sustainable management of natural resources and in agriculture under a changing climate. Leveraging the trust that Caritas Switzerland has built in-country at all levels, Memorandums of Understanding with key government partners are now in place, a key prerequisite for ensuring that benefits sustainably reach the rural poor. Together with an ostensible shift in external funding priorities to regional (multi-country) initiatives, this country strategy provides significant opportunity in the medium term for regional engagement in Central Asia.
