Africa Weather Hazard
Since early August, above-average seasonal rainfall caused flooding in some areas. With well above-average moisture conditions, additional rain in September may trigger flooding in parts of Senegal,
The Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, and Sierra Leone.
Recent heavy rains have caused the Benue River in Nigeria to overflow its banks. Reports indicate that 100,000 people may have been displaced by flooding. Continued rainfall will keep rivers high.
Sughd Province, Tajikistan, 14 September, 2017.
On the September 13th , 2017, UNDP Tajikistan together with the SDC funded National Water Resource Management Project, implemented by the HELVETAS Consortium (Helvetas, ACTED, and GIZ) held a pilot Workshop on Flood Management Planning in Khujand, Sughd Province.
A Changing Climate – And Growing Risk
The deep irony of climate change is that the countries least responsible for its causes will suffer the most from its effects. Nowhere in Central Asia is this truer than in Tajikistan, a heavily mountainous region with a population of 8.5 million and a high vulnerability to climate-induced shocks like droughts, flooding, landslides, and more.
International prices of wheat dipped in August, after increasing in the past few months, following an upturn in production prospects in the Black Sea region which improved the 2017 global supply outlook.
Maize quotations also fell on improved weather conditions and abundant global supplies. International prices of rice were relatively stable, although price movements were mixed across the different rice market segments.
DIPECHO X: Disaster Risk Reduction through Trans boundary Integrated Natural Resources Management in the Ak-Suu and Khoja-Bakirgan watersheds
ACTED and its partners have launched in August 2017 in Khujand a new phase of integrated watershed management for Disaster Risk Reduction (DDR), the so called DIPECHO X project, funded by EU Humanitarian, Aid. The flagship project directly builds on the achievements of previous DIPECHO’s interventions implemented in the Aksu and Khoja-Bakirgan watersheds
DIPECHO X Objectives:
1. Le présent rapport, qui couvre la période allant d’août 2015 à juillet 2017, est soumis en application de la résolution 70/80 de l’Assemblée générale, dans laquelle l’Assemblée a prié le Secrétaire général de lui présenter un rapport sur l’application de cette résolution, y compris sur les politiques adoptées et les activités menées par le système des Nations Unies dans ce domaine.

The Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) monitors trends in staple food prices in countries at risk of food insecurity. The Price Watch provides an update on market and price trends in selected reference markets. Specific trends for key reference markets and commodities are available in the Price Watch Annexes 1 and 2.
- Food Security situation in Tajikistan has steadily exacerbated in the past four years with the highest prevalence of food insecurity observed in May 2017. Households in this monitoring period are also marked with the highest percentage of food expenditure.
- While the food insecurity gap between male and female headed households has narrowed, the food insecurity level for both groups is the highest since 2014.
- Increased use of food consumption-based coping strategy may indicate a deterioration of food security in Tajikistan.
Seventeen Afghan border service officers completed a four-week OSCE patrolling and leadership training course on 9 August 2017 at the Gissar Training Centre, Tajikistan.
This bulletin examines trends in staple food and fuel prices, the cost of the basic food basket and consumer price indices for 69 countries in the second quarter of 2017 (April to June). The maps on pages 6–7 provide impact analysis dis-aggregated to sub-national level.
This report assembles information from various sources to analyse the current situation of drought in Central Asian countries for enhancing drought risk management and increasing efforts to develop drought preparedness plans and implement actions to reduce the impact of droughts. It assesses drought vulnerabilities, risk management capacities, and existing policies, institutions and practices in the countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Turkey.
Following the joint assessment conducted with the Committee for Emergency Situations (CoES), WFP Tajikistan provided immediate food assistance to the households affected by mudflows in Panjakent on June 29-30.
