General structure of legislation of Tajikistan in the sphere of environmental protection provides for close cooperation between local governmental authorities and relevant ministries in order to ensure successful environmental policy.

  • Department of Agriculture and its local bodies as well as Committee for Environmental Conservation are responsible for:
  • - conduct of policy in the sphere of application, storage and handling of pesticides;
  • -search for alternative methods in control of pest, plant diseases and weeds;
  • -development of effective methods on safe application of chemical crop protection agents;

-internal control of observance of regulations for pesticides application and handling;

  • -regulation of import and sales of pesticides; observance of rules for disposaland recovery of banned and invalid for application pesticides and their containers at landfills;
  • Committee for Environmental Conservation issues a decision on possibility of application and ban for their further application as well as provide control of environmental impact, emission/discharge of chemical agents and wastes into air, water and soil;
  • -cooperation with international partners in the sphere of environmental protection.

Local government authorities consist of representative and executive bodies which take practical measures for environmental protection at local level.

  • Tajikistan has never produced chemical crop protection agents, crop diseases and weeds control agents. Main sources of environmental pollution are: obsolete and banned pesticides which were imported in Soviet time.
  • Resources and residues of pesticides are mainly located at warehouses and two landfills –Kanibadam landfill (Sughd) and Vakhsh landfill (Khatlon).

Tajikistan is an agro-industrial republic, area of cultivated agricultural crops takes 850 thous. ha about 200 thous. ha of which are annually occupied by leading crop – cotton-plant. About 1.7 mln. ha is under the jurisdiction of forest resources.

  • Spending of pesticides in general over the republic in the end of last century was 12-15 kg per 1 ha of tillage and perennial plantings. At the present time spending is essentially declined. In 2012 Republic received only 159 tons of pesticides which is about 0.04 kg per 1 ha of agricultural lands.

Tajikistan never had and still has no pesticides production facilities. All agricultural chemical agents for crops protection and imported from other states.

Import of pesticides into Tajikistan


As a result of reorganization of agricultural sector and economic conversion in the republic application of pesticides has significantly decreased.

  • However prominent environmental impact heritage can be observed in certain sectors especially in places of storage of out of date pesticides.
