Civil society in Tajikistan has grown leaps and bounds over the past decade. Registered non-profit or non-governmental organizations grew tenfold from 1997, rising from 300 to 3,000 in 2013. CSOs play an important role in Tajikistan’s growth and development by providing seeds to farmers and micro financing for women’s working groups, promoting budget transparency, improving access to justice, and helping youth with educational opportunities. However, these organizations must overcome several constraints in order to contribute to economic development and improve accountability of service delivery.
Civil society in Tajikistan represents a wide spectrum of organizations, ranging from communal and neighborhood councils to more formal, officially registered public associations. According to the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), as of October 2012, there were 2,600 public associations registered in the country, an increase of approximately one hundred since the end of 2011. Approximately 1,000 of these are estimated to be active. There are also 1,400 legally registered Village Organizations (VOs), 105 Social Unions for the Development of VOs (SUDVOs), eleven Associations of SUDVOs (ASUDVOs), over seventy Water Users Associations (WUAs), and more than 2,600 community-based saving groups supported by the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF).
Civil society in Tajikistan represents a wide spectrum of organizations, ranging from communal and neighborhood councils to more formal, officially registered public associations. Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) have increasingly been broadening their scope of activities from service delivery to monitoring public services and promoting accountable and transparent governance, particularly at the local level. Large organizations and coalitions have greater organizational capacities than smaller and rural CSOs, which can lack the necessary staff, tools, and other resources to engage in monitoring efforts.
The Tajikistan National NGO Association has been recently granted funds to organize and facilitate several roundtables discussions with CSO representatives in the framework of project “Demand for Good Governance” initiated and funded by the World Bank. In light of this, a nine-month project entitled “Facilitation Services for CSOs on Demand side Governance in Tajikistan” is currently being implemented by the Association in cooperation with its partners in regions of Khorugh (“Qalam”), Khujand (“Consortium – Initiative”), Kulob (“Sharwand”), Rasht (“Oshtii milli”), Panjakent (“Zani Sharq”) and Dushanbe (“Tretiy sector”).
Ҳуҷҷатгузорӣ ва тибқи низоми мављуда сари вақт омода сохтани маълумоту ҳисобот ба мақомоти марбута яке аз бахшҳои муҳимми фаъолияти созмонҳои ғайридавлатӣ ба шумор меравад. Арзишмандии ҳуҷҷат ҳангоми баҳсҳо ва ҳалли ягон масъала дар ташкилот бештар эҳсос карда мешавад. Ҳуҷҷат барои ҳалли масъала дар сурате метавонад ҳамчун далел бошад, ки агар он дуруст ва босаводона тартиб дода шуда бошад. Мутаассифона, ҳуҷҷатгузории ташкилотҳои ғайридавлатӣ на ҳамеша ҷавобгӯи талабот мебошад, махсусан бо забони давлатӣ. Яке аз сабабҳои чунин ҳолати ногувор кам шудани мутахассисони ҳуҷҷатгузор аст. Аз тарафи дигар, маводи омӯзишӣ доир ба тартиби ҳуҷҷатгузорӣ ба забони давлатӣ хеле кам дастрас аст.
