Tajikistan

The NIP (supported by the GEF/UNEP) has stated privately owned burials sites and stores without state control to be priorities. Tajikistan reports 9,720 metric tonnes of obsolete pesticides plus about 256,500 m3 of soil contaminated by pesticides, including POPs.

Tajikistan participates in the Turkish-funded FAO/IPM project (2011). Within this project, nationwide inventories of obsolete pesticides will be conducted in spring 2012. The GEF/UNEP DDT project is also running, in which a minimum of 60 tonnes of (mainly) DDT will be safeguarded, as well as the World Bank project Technical assistance together with Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, 2009 – 2011. All inventory work uses FAO forms. A pilot project on obsolete pesticides disposal and remediation of sites (World Bank) was conducted in 2009-10 that included inventories in the region of Khatlon, where training and inventory has been implemented with FAO system.
