Show all

Although Tajikistan is commonly perceived as an assistance-seeker, there is strong evidence for positioning the country as an important regional and global player. Transboundary issues, such as energy and water management, transport, especially roads and railways, custom services, human and animal health, climate change and environment will remain high priorities for regional cooperation.

Within its mandate UNOSSC supports the governments and UNCTs in the Arab states, Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States in their efforts to take stock of the existing practices of South-South cooperation, potential areas that would benefit from South-South exchanges and initiatives, as well as the knowledge, expertise and successful development experiences that can be shared with other countries. The stocktaking process results in the elaboration of recommendations intended to help the governments, private sector, civil society and UN agencies to mainstream and advance South-South cooperation in the countries.
