Country Profiles

Tajikistan - Country Profile

The national targets (or equivalent) presented in this database are taken from the NBSAPs received since COP-10, fifth national reports or from documents submitted separately. The mapping of national targets to the Aichi Biodiversity Targets by the Party concerned is indicated in the last column “Related Aichi Target(s)”. All Parties are encouraged to undertake this mapping exercise and to submit this information to SCBD for incorporation in this database.

Reference Target Related Strategic Goals/Aichi Targets
Target 1 By 2020, at the latest, people are aware of the values of biodiversity and the steps they can take to conserve and use it sustainably.
Target 2 By 2020, at the latest, biodiversity values have been integrated into national and local development and poverty reduction strategies and planning processes and are being incorporated into national accounting, as appropriate, and reporting systems.
Target 3 By 2020, at the latest, incentives, including subsidies, harmful to biodiversity are eliminated, phased out or reformed in order to minimize or avoid negative impacts, and positive incentives for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity are developed and applied, consistent and in harmony with the Convention and other relevant international obligations, taking into account national socio-economic conditions.
Target 4 Parliament, Government of the country and local authorities strengthen the legislation on the national, local and sectorial levels and adopt measures for sustainable regulation of use of natural resources, and mainly, biological resources.
Target 5 Introduction of incentive mechanisms in preservation zones of natural habitats of biodiversity, particularly, genetic resources and especially valuable species for the purposes of food security, medicine and selective breeding.
Target 6 Regulation of use of natural resources, strengthening of control, establishment of the regime of use of natural resources in water conservation zones and belts in aquatic and semi-aquatic ecosystems with presence of local fish species, aquatic and limnetic animal species, including rare endemic species, including their habitats and spawning sites.
Target 7 Sustainable management of land use with consideration of representative preservation of biodiversity, and ensuring sustainable preservation of migration channels and diversity in accordance with approved national and regional eco-net.
Target 8 By 2020, at the latest, to identify and conduct inventory of aquatic ecosystems of Tajikistan by geographic zones and natural belts, to conduct assessment of the level of their vulnerability, and to adopt measures on reduction of the level of biogenic substances for safe state of biodiversity.
Target 9 By 2020, at the latest, invasive and alien species are registered, classified, and identified for the purpose of elimination of their threat to the local biodiversity, and measures on regulation of paths of their motion and introduction are developed.
Target 10 This target is not relevant for Tajikistan since it does not have access to sea.
Target 11 By 2020, at the latest: To improve and strengthen preservation and rational use of biodiversity in order to ensure optimal provision of ecosystems services, particularly, high-mountain cryophyte, low-mountain sand-desert ecosystems, xerophyte light forest ecosystems, savannah ecosystems. Therewith, mesophile broad-leaved walnut ecosystems have top priority.
Target 12 By 2020 to conduct full inventory, cartography and conditioning of habitats of and sites of rare species of biodiversity which are under the threat of extinction, and to develop mechanisms of rehabilitation and prevention of the threat of reduction of species and populations, to define the status of their preservation and use.
Target 13 By 2020, to develop e-catalogue (album) of genetic resources of the main plant and animal species, their wild congeners, assessment of valuability of genetic resources by regions and ecosystems sectioned by ecologic districts, ecosystems and their importance for the global, regional, national and local biodiversity
Target 14 By 2020, to specify representativity of the ecosystems included into the list of SPNAs; to conduct assessment of ecosystems by the level of valuability for ecosystem services; measures are taken to rehabilitate the most valuable ecosystems supporting ecosystem services.
Target 15 By 2020, to improve resistance of the ecosystems and to increase the input of biodiversity into accumulation of carbon through preservation and regeneration of valuable natural mountainous ecosystems, rehabilitation of restructurised ecosystems by at least 15% which will promote mitigation of consequences of climate change and adaptation of biodiversity and combating desertification.
Target 16 To develop the concept of implementation of goals and targets stated in Nagoya Protocol and establishment of governmental working group. By 2017 to develop the mechanism safeguarding the access to genetic resources and joint distribution of profits in accordance with requirements of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
Target 17 By 2015, the Republic of Tajikistan will develop and adopt NSACPB, and will accept as a political instrument effective joint and updated National Strategy and Action Plan on Preservtaion of Biodiversity; by 2020 to launch its implementation.
Target 18 By 2020, traditional knowledge, novations and practice of native and local communities which are important for preservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and use of biological resources are included into legal-regulative documents as a mechanism of sustainable preservation and use of biodiversity in accordance with the national legislation and UN Convention on Biological Diversity.
Target 19 By 2020, to modernize the scientific basis and technologies related to biodiversity, its cost estimate, value and functioning of ecosystem services; widespread use, transfer and application of knowledge, information on their status and trends in this sphere, changes, and consequences of its loss.
Target 20 By 2020, at the latest, mobilization of financial resources for effective implementation of the Strategic Plan in the sphere of preservation and sustainable use of biodiversity for 2011-2020 must be significantly expanded in comparison to the current rates, from all the sources and in accordance with generalized and agreed process in the frames of the Strategy on mobilization of resources.
