International organizations help mitigate climate change related risks in Tajikistan

A project in the mountainous regions of Tajikistan is launched in October 2011 thanks to donations totaling nearly US$1 million each from the Swiss and British governments, together with support from the Aga Khan Development Network and German non-governmental aid agency Help World Hunger, to reduce the risk of glacial lake outburst floods due to accelerated glacial melt resulting from climate change.
