Farmers who once relied on food aid, and were too poor to buy seeds, are once again farming remote parts of Tajikistan, thanks in part to the World Bank. And they're working to restore degraded lands. To learn more about the food crisis, visit http://www.worldbank.org/foodcrisis
Nov 2007 Tajikistan is struggling to cope with an influx of cheap drugs from Afghanistan. The country has just one rehab clinic and on average, ten soldiers a year die in shoot outs with drug traffickers. Last year, more than two billion dollars worth of heroin was smuggled from Afghanistan. "No matter how much effort we put into fighting the trafficking, the real problem is in Afghanistan", complains General Nazarov. Many are nostalgic of the days of the Taliban, when heroin was much harder to obtain.

In the far north of Albania, a range of rugged peaks rises to a high point at Jezerca (2694m) and is known locally as the Albanian Alps. Stunning and remote, this area is an undiscovered gem with one of the warmest welcomes in Europe! These "alps" form the southern part of the mountain range called the Dinaric Alps extending from the Julian Alps in Slovenia to Mt Korab on the border between Albania and Macedonia.

Simon Reeve visits Tajikistan and sees the terrain that has been the home of bandits and smugglers for centuries - the same terrain that is now suspected to hold members of Al Qaeda and the remnants of the Taliban. Fascinating video from BBC travel documentary 'Holidays in the Danger Zone: Meet the Stans.
Recorded 7 May 2013. Tajikistan is recognized for its geopolitical importance. Millions of dollars have been invested into infrastructure, government stabilization, and counter narcotics training and operations. Despite the drastic increase in both production of opium and international funding, the Tajik Drug Control Agency's seizures have dropped 80% from 2001. The drug trade seems impervious; especially considering their strategic military location. How the global community addresses this issue is unique, in that we are prioritizing their stability -- at whatever political cost (breach of human rights/blatant corruption). The US provides training to elite military forces, government officials, and law enforcement with the publicized goal of fighting corruption and the war on drugs. Abou...
Russian/Nat Drugs smuggling throughout the former Soviet Central Asian republics has surged since the collapse of the Soviet Union led to a breakdown in borders. The Russian government claims over half of all drugs in Russia come from Tajikistan or via Tajikistan from Afghanistan. Some say the Central Asian state is becoming the Colombia of the CIS. The Tajik police are trying to fight the upsurge in drug trafficking but find themselves undermanned and underequipped. The mountain range of Zaravshan in Northern Tajikistan - a thousand metres above sea level, it is an area of wild and natural beauty. And separated from the rest of Tajikistan by almost impassable mountains, it is an ideal location for the country's fastest growing business - drugs. According to estimates, one h...
Tajikistan, the poorest country in central Asia, was with neighbouring Uzbekistan the cotton producer of the Soviet Union. In a mountainous country with only 6% of arable land, 80% of all agriculture has been exclusively devoted to cotton. Today, the government pursues the same agricultural policy while the country tries to recover from a five-year civil war and a series of droughts. The land reform is not yet complete and farmers must follow cotton production plans on credit. Poverty has increased and food supply is insufficient. The international community helps with funds which are managed by the villagers to introduce alternative crops and livelihoods.
The mission of "SugdAgroServ" is to fight poverty in the agricultural community of Tajikistan by means of increasing the income of the farmers through the creation of conditions for independent production and commercial farm activity.
