Census of Agriculture in Tajikistan

In order to obtain complete information on the agriculture sector of the Republic of Tajikistan and to compare the data with other countries, the Statistical Agency under the President of the Republic of Tajikistan is entrusted with responsibility for preparation, collection, processing, compilation and publication of the agricultural census results pursuant to Government Resolution No.358 as of August 1, 2011.

At the present time there is a preparatory stage for conducting of the census: the concept and questionnaires, as well as preliminary budget worth $4 million, have been developed.

The success of the agricultural census depends on coordination of the activities and financial contribution to this event from the state bodies and development partners. In this regard, the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) has agreed to provide the Statistical Agency with a long-term international expert to give advisory assistance in preparation and conducting the agricultural census provided that full financial support of the event is rendered.

Mrs. Mukhammadieva B.Z., Director of the Statistical Agency, met with the Mr. Nosim Jawad, the FAO representative in Tajikistan – Coordinator, Mr. Sangiboy Sanginov, the FAO Project Manager, and Mr. Nicholas Gigas, Deputy Director of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation on February 22, 2012.

At this meeting Mukhammadieva B.Z. detailed the success of the ‘Strengthening the national statistical system’ project, capacity building, and the population census conducted in 2010. Mrs. Mukhammadieva also mentioned that the agriculture census in Tajikistan will be conducted for the first time, and she urged the development partners to jointly solve the problems in its implementation.

Mr. Nosim Jawad said that the FAO representation could organize training for the agency experts and provide advisory services.

Mr. Nicholas Gigas pointed out that creation of the agriculture database is important for long-term planning, forecasting and policy making for the agricultural sector development. Any agricultural reform is impossible without reliable and valid indicators. It is necessary to develop a project proposal, which must include the important aspects of the agricultural census, and hold a meeting with the representatives of government agencies and donor communities.

Project Manager of the FAO representation Mr. Sangiboy Sanginov expressed readiness to offer the assistance in preparation of this document.

The Director of the Statistical Agency thanked for their support and assistance and looked forward to future cooperation for the success of this event.
