Dushanbe, 28.11.2016 /NIAT “Khovar”/. “About 60% of Central Asia’s water resources take their sources within our country and the Government of Tajikistan has been making intensive efforts to address water issues”, – said today the President of the Republic of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon, speaking at the Budapest Water Summit 2016.

“We channeled about 1.7 bln. US dollars into this vitally important sector over the last ten years. However, despite these efforts, our country still faces challenges in various water subsectors”, – expressed concern the Head of State.

According to the Leader of the Nation, such a situation is first and foremost associated with the outdated infrastructure, limited financial resources and insufficient technical capacity..

“We improved water supply conditions for over 1.5 mln. people in the last decade”, — stressed Emomali Rahmon, adding that however, a part of our population, particularly in rural areas is still in need for improved sanitation and access to safe drinking water sources.
