Tajikistan Development Effectiveness Country Brief
dc.description.abstractTajikistan is a small, landlocked country with a per capita income of $360 per annum. After years of social and political turmoil and economic collapse, peace and stability have been restored, the economy is picking up, and living standards are improving from the dismally low levels experienced during most of the 1990s. Poverty incidence declined from a crushing 81% in 1999 to 64% in 2003, and evidence suggests that it has continued to decline since then. Even though the economy has recently been gaining momentum, Tajikistan faces serious challenges in reducing poverty and achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The country’s social and economic infrastructure remains in a poor state. Its remoteness from markets, aggravated by poor infrastructure, is a binding constraint to development. State institutions are weak and slow to adapt to new realities. The economy remains heavily dependent on commodity exports and remittances from abroad. The 1,200-kilometer (km) long border with Afghanistan makes Tajikistan an important transit country for drug trade, with related risks such as the spread of HIV/AIDS and corruption.
