The research aims to provide solid evidence for enhancing socioeconomic policies of the target countries to: (a) enhance management and coordination of labour migration between the host and destination countries, and (b) ensure more effective use of remittances for development to secure a long-term climate-resilient future of Tajikistan.
The present Working Paper, part 1 covers Tajikistan and captures key tendencies on socio-economic development and how migration and remittances contribute to these dynamics. Based on the analysis, the paper suggests viable ways to improve relevant policies on migration, remittances, climate change, poverty reduction and economic development, considering migrants’ remittances as a contributor to climate resilient development.
This work is one of the research packages of the “Pathways to Resilience in Semi-Arid Economies” or PRISE. PRISE is a five-year, multi-country research project that generates new knowledge about how economic development in semi-arid regions can be made more equitable and resilient to climate change
