The United Nations of Tajikistan in cooperation with the Government of Tajikistan is implementing the “Financing SDGs in Tajikistan” project. The project is financed by the Joint SDG Fund and implemented by 3 UN Agencies in Tajikistan: UNDP, UNICEF and UN Women. The overall strategy of the programme is to employ a two-pronged approach: strengthening policy space and addressing technical constraints to securing SDG financing. The two-pronged interventions will enable the government to achieve its national development priorities. The programme is particularly important and timely in the context of the challenging economic situation and rising fiscal pressures, resulting in widening of the financing gap to support the implementation of national SDG targets until 2030. Since the government's approved expenditure budget for FY'2020 equals $2.7 billion while the estimated financing gap (2020-2030) stands at $118 billion, the programme will help the government to approve and implement a realistic financing plan to achieve its national development priorities and SDG targets. UN Women in Tajikistan will specifically deliver the following result: integrated tool for tracking and reporting of on-budget gender-disaggregated SDG financing vis-à-vis national SDG targets is operationalized by the government, linked to the National SDG Financing Roadmap, and it guides the legislature.
The joint programme is nationally owned initiative anchored in the National Development Strategy for 2016-2030 and with a clear commitment to leave no one behind. The programme will promote evidence-based policies and actions backed by disaggregated data by gender and other vulnerability metrics. In the process of achieving programmatic results, the focus will be to build technical and managerial capacities and strengthening partnerships with key government institutions. Implementation of an integrated resource mobilization strategy also means that the programme will improve accountability and transparency of the government’s budgeting practices to achieve the national SDG targets.
The programme is implemented in close partnership and coordination with Ministry of Finance (MoF), Ministry of Economic Development and Trade (MEDT), Ministry of Education and Science (MoES), the State Committee for Investment and State Property Management (SCISPM) and the Parliament.
