Analytical paper "Migration, remittances and climate resilience in Tajikistan, Part I"
The publication is available here.
The research aims to provide solid evidence for enhancing socioeconomic policies of the target countries to: (a) enhance management and coordination of labor migration between the host and destination countries, and (b) ensure more effective use of remittances for development to secure a long-term climate-resilient future of Tajikistan.
The present Working Paper, part 1 covers Tajikistan and captures key tendencies on socio-economic development and how migration and remittances contribute to these dynamics. Based on the analysis, the paper suggests viable ways to improve relevant policies on migration, remittances, climate change, poverty reduction and economic development, considering migrants’ remittances as a contributor to climate resilient development.
This work is one of the research packages of the “Pathways to Resilience in Semi-Arid Economies” or PRISE.
PRISE is a five-year, multi-country research project that generates new knowledge about how economic development in semi-arid regions can be made more equitable and resilient to climate change
The second part of the Working Paper is based on the outcomes of the household survey and aims to generate evidence to guide the design and implementation of socio-economic development programs in Tajikistan, especially those focused on managing climate induced risks and promoting climate change adaptation measures. The second part of the work is expected to be published in autumn 2017.
The Regional Environmental Centre for Central Asia (CAREC) is an implementing partner of the project in Tajikistan
