Doctoral thesis

Topic: “Tajikistan in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Multilateral Negotiations Process: Achievements, Commitments and Perspectives for Tajikistan”

Supervisor: Prof. Saidali Muhiddinov


This research explores possible challenges and opportunities for Tajikistan’s implementation of the UNFCCC Paris Agreement commitments. Moreover, it evaluates experiences from best practices as well as sharing experiences with neighbouring countries. The paper will present policy recommendations to Tajikistan for climate change mainstreaming and for the implementation of the roadmap for the Nationally Determined Contribution on emmissions reduction and UNFCCC Paris Agreement commitments. The research method consists of a literature review, an analysis of the sectoral policy and international agreements ratified by Tajikistan. The paper will also include data collection and processing of allocations from the national budget on climate change activities, surveys and interviews with key stakeholders from the government, think tanks, development partners and regional as well as international organizations; field visits to different regions of Tajikistan in order to see local capacity level on climate change mainstreaming, and the participation at UNFCCC Conference of Parties negotiations as a member of the Tajik delegation. The topic is highly relevant for Tajikistan as well as for international relations studies because implementation and enhanced ambition of Nationally Determined Contribution, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the transition to green economy is a priority at the moment.
