WB gives more to Tajikistan for farmland, energy projects – Central Asia Online.

DUSHANBE – World Bank (WB) and Tajik officials March 16 signed agreements on additional WB aid to Tajik projects meant to register farmland and to increase energy conservation, AsiaPlus.tj reported.

The WB, through its International Development Association, plans to give US $10m (47.7m TJS) to help register land and create a cadastre system, both meant to enable sustainable agricultural development. The funding will help expand the restructuring of farmland holdings. It also will enable officials to give farmers certificates entitling them to use land, further development of the cadastre system and aid the formulation of various pilot projects for registering real estate. Completion of the agricultural project is scheduled for March 2015.

The WB approved US $18m (86m TJS) in financing for the Energy Loss Reduction Project in February. Tajikistan and the WB have been partners in this project since 2005.
