First online countrywide multi-hazard risk assessment platform launched in Tajikistan
The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) jointly with the Emergencies Committee under the Government of Tajikistan has launched Tajikistan’s first Countrywide Multi-Hazard Risk Assessment Platform.
The platform, designed to serve as a visual risk analysis tool to facilitate better landscape and developmental planning by stakeholders, risk assessors, decision makers, has been made by UNDP under financial support of the Government of Japan and Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
The online visual platform is based on data collected for the multi-hazard risk assessment conducted between 2018 and 2020.
The assessment covered 58 districts of Tajikistan and seven types of natural hazards most prevalent in the country. The research team conducted feasibility studies using high resolution satellite images and specialized data provided by national agencies, stakeholders, and open-source data.
