KULOB – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) held today a special event to celebrate World Breastfeeding Week to highlight the importance of breastfeeding as key to children’s survival, nutrition and early development.
Protecting and promoting breastfeeding is part of WFP’s Prevention and Treatment of Moderate Acute Malnutrition project that is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The project supports the Government of Tajikistan in improving nutrition by providing access to nutritional support and healthcare.
WASHINGTON, August 1, 2018 – The Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan, which are highly prone to natural disasters and future climate change risks, will benefit from improved hydrometeorological services thanks to additional financing to the Central Asia Hydrometeorology Modernization Project (CAHMP).
Global Overview JULY 2018
Cities across Central Asia experienced catastrophic seismic shocks throughout the 20th century. For example, Tashkent – the most populated city in Central Asia today – was razed to the ground by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake in 1966, with over 300,000 people reportedly losing their homes. Turkmenistan’s capital city of Ashgabat was severely impacted by a 7.3 quake in 1948, with thousands of deaths reported.
Heavy rainfall triggers flooding in the Sahel
Since mid-July, torrential rains received in western Nigeria have triggered floods, damages to infrastructure and fatalities in the Ogun and Katsina states of the country.
Locally torrential rainfall forecast over parts of western Sudan and eastern Chad may trigger flooding next week.
Irregular rainfall since June has resulted in significant moisture deficits and deteriorated ground conditions across parts of western Uganda, northeastern DRC, and southern South Sudan.
In a complex and fast-changing world, we remain focused and resolute in pursuit of our goal – to provide the most appropriate, effective medicine in the harshest of environments. As well as responding to vital needs, our aid is born of a desire to show solidarity with people who are suffering, whether as a result of conflict, neglect or disease.

YEREVAN, 27 June 2018 - Representatives from six countries in Central Asia and the South Caucasus are meeting for two days in the Armenian capital, Yerevan, to discuss progress in implementing the global plan for reducing disaster losses, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.
More than 200 representatives of governments, civil society, United Nations and the private sector are examining the increasing impact of extreme weather events and climate change and the risks from potential man-made hazards.
Tajikistan is a landlocked, lower-middle income, food deficit country. The mountainous landscape confines arable land to just seven percent of the country’s surface and poses enormous challenges to food security during the winter period. The country is the poorest in the Commonwealth of Independent States, with 47 percent of the population living on less than USD 1.33 a day and 17 percent subsisting on less than USD 0.85 a day.
Dushanbe, 22 June 2018 – Following the devastating floods that struck southern Tajikistan in May, the European Commission has allocated €60,000 (approximately TJS 63,000) in humanitarian funding to bring emergency assistance to communities affected by the disaster.
DUSHANBE, June 20, 2018 – Mitigating the increases in floods, droughts, melting glaciers and other climate change-related effects requires coordinated action at the national, regional, and global levels, said Cyril Muller, World Bank Vice President for Europe and Central Asia, during his visit to Tajikistan on June 20, 2018.
What is FFA?
The most food-insecure people often live in fragile and degraded landscapes and areas prone to recurrent natural shocks and other risks. Food Assistance for Assets (FFA) is one of WFP’s flagship initiatives aimed at addressing the most foodinsecure people’s immediate food needs with cash, voucher or food transfers while helping improve their long-term food security and resilience.
Gulf of Guinea is abnormally dry, while areas of Kenya remain at risk for flooding
Africa Weather Hazards
Poorly-distributed rain during the March-May rainfall season has led to large moisture deficits in southeastern Tigray and eastern Amhara regions of Ethiopia.
A slow onset to seasonal rainfall and consistent limited rain over the past several weeks has maintained moisture deficits and caused abnormal dryness over the Gulf of Guinea countries.
