BAKU, Azerbaijan, Sept. 4. The US Agency for
International Development (USAID) is providing a reliable drinking
water access to people in Tajikistan, a representative from the
Rural Water Supply Activity, a USAID program being implemented by
international development organization Chemonics International told
Within the framework of the USAID Rural Water Supply Activity
Project, which is implemented by the Chemonics, a total of 3,400
people (including school and health facilities) now receive 24/7
quality drinking water in Tajikistan.
“It is expected to provide reliable and sustainable drinking
water access to about 45,000 Tajiks. We hope to demonstrate to
municipalities and local entrepreneurs that privately operated
water systems are sound and sustainable businesses, and thus
attract much needed private investments to serve rural areas in
Tajikistan,” says the project team.
For instance, in this year the project supported the
rehabilitation of the rural drinking water system in Chorbogh
village of A. Jomi district (Khatlon), and ensured its
sustainability by empowering a private entrepreneur to operate and
maintain the system.
In the coming year, USAID should be able to complete several
other rehabilitation projects and provide sustainable drinking
water access to over 20,000 people in Tajikistan.
The USAID Rural Water Supply Activity, which will be completed
on September 30, 2025, supports small-scale rehabilitation of
drinking water infrastructure in targeted rural communities in
