October 31, 2014

Dushanbe, Tajikistan, October 30, 2014 – United States Ambassador Susan M. Elliott and Akbar Pesnani, the Aga Khan Development Network Resident Representative, signed a new global development alliance entitled Economic and Social Connections: A Multi-Input Area Development Financing Facility for Tajikistan to be implemented by the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF).

The alliance will promote sustained improvements in the quality of life for people living along the Tajik border with Afghanistan.  AKF and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) will each contribute just over $6 million to the alliance over five years, for a total commitment of $12.1 million.

This new alliance will focus development resources on major sectors that influence quality of life:  economic growth through enterprise development; household financial security; governance and civil society; health; and education.

Simultaneously, the alliance will invest in private sector companies in Tajikistan in order to create jobs, promote regional trade, and thereby stimulate the Tajik economy as a whole.
