Project Description

The proposed project will finance procurement of road maintenance equipment to be employed by the Ministry of Transport and Communications to carry out essential maintenance work on the road network of Tajikistan.

Transition Impact

The proposed project, together with a parallel technical cooperation programme, will assist the Government to achieve sustainable road maintenance on the republican road network of Tajikistan. Transition impact also builds on the high economic returns which come from improved road maintenance, and resulting lower transport costs. These in turn assist with regional integration and social development.

The Client

The borrower is the Republic of Tajikistan. The project will be implemented by the Ministry of Transport and Communications

EBRD Finance

USD 4 million (EBRD loan).

The project will also benefit from an investment grant to be provided by the Government of the Netherlands.


Project Cost

Estimated USD 6 million.

Environmental Impact

Screened C/1.The Project involves only procurement of equipment and is associated with no significant environmental issues. Some environmental impacts may arise from the use of the road maintenance equipment. However, these can be avoided or mitigated by appropriate management of road maintenance and work practices. The Bank will fund a TC programme aiming at improving the Ministry of Transport and Communications’ capacity to plan, manage and implement road maintenance. The TC will produce a Road Maintenance Management Plan, which will include an environmental management plan. This will take into consideration the environmental management, mitigation and protection measures that are being developed under the on-going road rehabilitation programmes financed by the Government, other IFIs, and bilateral assistance.

Technical Cooperation

EUR 500,000 for the preparation of transition components.

Text of the PIP

Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)

If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).

IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.

Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out how to submit a Request for review through our confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. IPAM is available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of Requests, which follow the Project Accountability Policy and Guidance. Requestors’ identities may be kept confidential, upon request.
