Wetlands of Tajikistan

Wetlands of Tajikistan are also a constant object of attention of scientists. In the Republic of Tajikistan, 15 wetlands have been identified, 5 of them, the Karakul, Shorkul, Rangul, Zorkul lakes, the water area of the Tigrovaya Balka reserve and the Kairakkum reservoir are included in the list of Ramsar sites of global importance. Rivers, lakes and swamps of the country are under constant control of the Committee for Environmental Protection under the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan.

Issues of water quality, status of rare flora and fauna, strategies for sustainable management of water resources, protection and restoration of disturbed ecosystems are discussed at national and international scientific conferences. Instructions and articles on all issues of protection, restoration and rational use of wetlands are regularly published in special publications of the Committee.
