Between 11 April and 18 May 2014 a series of small to medium scale disasters occurred in several districts of Tajikistan. Flash floods and mudslides pounded the already poor communities in quick succession, leaving little time for recovery. Agricultural lands suffered significant damage at a time when planting works were taking place. Livestock also perished in the disasters, putting additional stress on the affected families who are often reliant on cattle for their livelihood.
