The Republic of Tajikistan in close collaboration with international donor society has been implementing a Water Sector Reform over several years. For this purpose, a Water Sector Reform Program for the period of 2016 -2025 has been developed and approved. The Program describes existing problems in the water sector, defines goals and objectives of the reform, mechanisms for achieving the goals and objectives, as well as necessary financial resources for the implementation of the reform. The document also serves as a roadmap for the reform implementation by offering a detailed Action Plan consisting of 4 sections that are a) development of legislation and regulation, b) institutional development, c) infrastructure rehabilitation and c) support tools for water sector reform.
The Water Code of the Republic of Tajikistan was reviewed and a new edition was adopted on April 02, 2020 as part of the Program Action Plan related to the development of legislation. It is worth mentioning that the Water Code is a fundamental regulatory legal act that regulates the use and protection of water resources at the level of state regulation and control through certain state-authorized bodies and various water users.
It is anticipated that in the framework of the Water Sector Reform, numerous laws, legal and normative acts existing from the Soviet times and/or developed before the commence of the Water Sector Reform, will have to undergo a thorough revision. Based on the results of the revisions, relevant modifications are expected to be made.
Within the framework of the Water Sector Reform, the OSCE POiD supported the Agency of Land Reclamation and Irrigation (ALRI), one of its key government partners in water resources management, in developing a number of subsector bylaws (four bylaws) in 2018. However, in the light of the newly developed Water Code, a detailed analysis of the Water Code and other legislative acts related to land reclamation and irrigation should be conducted. The purpose of the analysis is to identify specific legal and normative acts related to land reclamation and irrigation as well as to determine what other legal and normative acts, such as for instance by-laws and/or laws are necessary to elaborate or to modify.
Specifically, within the framework of this particular ToR it is anticipated that:
