ACTED launches EU-funded DIPECHO X promoting integrated Watershed Management between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan

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.

It aims to consolidate and institutionalize the management of transboundary watersheds through Natural Resource Management (NRM) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) strategies for better Disaster Risk Reduction and Disaster Risk Management, as per the priorities indicated in the Sendai Framework for DRR 2015-2030.The project directly targets 30 communities from all municipalities of the Khoja-Bakirgan and Aksu watersheds, both in Tajikistan and in Kyrgyzstan, for 18 months. Overall, the programme will benefit more than 84 000 people in targeted communities.
