Tajik Agrarian University officially unveils an educational cluster for hydrology and agrometeorology
Supported through joint collaboration between Caritas Switzerland and the Government of Switzerland, Tajik Agrarian University, named after Shirinsho Shotemur, officially unveiled an educational cluster for hydrology and agrometeorology at its Dushanbe campus.
Government of Switzerland and Caritas Switzerland funds have been mobilized to renovate an existing building on campus that now houses a laboratory, 120 student workspaces and faculty offices for developing and enhancing national capacities in specialized areas related to efficient utilization of water resources and accessible weather, water and climate services, says press release issued by Caritas.
Contextually relevant research will be supported through collaboration with Swiss and international institutions of research, and through student access to field sites for training and applied research financed through Swiss funded initiatives within Tajikistan. 
This investment capitalizes on memorandums of understanding signed in 2019 between the Governments of Switzerland and Tajikistan on integrated water resources management and a second on climate change and disaster risk reduction.
