Only 7 % of land in Tajikistan is usable for agriculture due to its mountainous terrain - the fact that more than 12 million m2 of Tajikistan’s land remain suspected of contamination is therefore detrimental to subsistence and economic development.
NPA has the first and only female demining capacity in Tajikistan and in the Central Asian Region. They have been successfully conducting land release activities since 2014.
Tajikistan has some of the world’s highest (3,700 m) and least accessible minefields in the world.
The NPA Tajikistan programme has released a total of 10,686,109 m2, completed over 100 clearance tasks and found and destroyed 25,474 landmines; 398 cluster munitions, and 3,426 ERW as of the end of 2022.
NPA is working in cooperation with the Tajikistan National Mine Action Center, the Border Guard Forces of Tajikistan and with the Ministry of Defense of Tajikistan in order to build national capacity in Tajikistan.
