In Tajikistan, agrarian reform and the promotion of land rights for citizens have given farmers better control over their livelihoods and increased productivity of the agriculture sector.
Final Report: Tajikistan Land Reform and Farm Restructuring Project .
Project Report | August 31, 2016
The Land Reform and Farm Restructuring Project helped farmers in Tajikistan and local participants improve their livelihoods through a host of governmental reforms, technical advice, and capacity-building policies. As a result, farmers, civil society actors, and policymakers enhanced their homeland.
In October 2013, USAID launched the Feed the Future-funded Land Reform and Farm Restructuring Project (LRFRP). This $5.5 million, three-year project supported the continuing process of dehkan (individual or family) farm restructuring and recognition of property rights, leading to a market in land-use rights. This occurred through four key tasks: 1) legislative reform, 2) building the capacity of Tajik officials, farmers, rural stakeholders, and civil society, 3) increased public information and awareness, and 4) provision of legal advice and assistance to rural farmers.
