Tajikistan Hydropower Climate Resilience

Using global hydropower expertise to help the development of a Central Asian country

  • Tajikistan


Supporting an essential improvement for a country that relies almost entirely on glacial hydropower

Since 2015, our international Hydropower team has worked under several contracts with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) on a capacity building project aimed at strengthening the climate resilience of Tajikistan’s energy sector assets and operations. The project is part of the EBRD’s investment in the rehabilitation of the Qairokkum hydropower plant in northern Tajikistan.

By sharing knowledge and providing dedicated training and support, this project enhances capacities to improve understanding and management of climate change risks to the energy sector as a whole—and hydropower operations in particular—and ensures that investments in the hydropower infrastructure contribute towards the longer-term climate resilience of Tajikistan’s hydropower sector. Our team of specialists in hydrology, dam safety, and hydropower engineering from Canada, Türkiye, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom are providing services to strengthen capacities and build skills in new technical areas. We’re committed to helping create long-term mechanisms to promote professional development and knowledge transfer to hydropower sector professionals at the Tajik national power company, Barqi Tojik, the country’s national hydro-meteorology agency, Tajik Hydromet, and other relevant institutions in Tajikistan.

As the project continues, our work helps the country—so reliant on hydropower—prepare for the future.
