    • As of August 4, more than 620,000 metric tons (MT) of cereals have been harvested, including 537,000 MT wheat, similar to last year’s above-average harvest according to the Ministry of Agriculture. Additional harvested grain is expected as more areas report and the harvest in the highlands gets underway.

    • Wheat flour prices were stable across major markets in Tajikistan. Potato prices significantly decreased in many markets after the harvest started in Tajikistan over the two months, but potatoes remain more expensive than last year.

    • Availability of most sources of food and income remains normal to above-normal in Tajikistan. Food and income from the average to above-average grain harvest, imported food, agricultural labor opportunities during the harvest, casual work opportunities in the construction sector, and the inflow of remittances will likely maintain in Minimal (IPC Phase 1) acute food insecurity from now through December.

    In remote monitoring, a coordinator typically works from a nearby regional office. Relying on partners for data, the coordinator uses scenario development to conduct analysis and produce monthly reports. As less data may be available, remote monitoring reports may have less detail than those from countries with FEWS NET offices. Learn more about our work here.
