    • According to the Ministry of Agriculture, as of November 9th, nearly 767,000 metric tons of grain were harvested in Tajikistan, four percent less than at the same time in 2013. Wheat flour prices were stable from September to October and were on average 13 percent above the five-year average, similar to what they have been for most of 2014.

    • Much of the country received average to above-average precipitation in October and November, with the exception of Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast (GBAO), which has received below-average precipitation. Planting of winter crops, primarily wheat and barley, is ongoing.

    • Most households are preparing for the winter and lean season with normal access to food and income sources, and most areas are expected to remain in Minimal (IPC Phase 1). Planting labor is ongoing. According to a recent report by the Central Bank of Russia, remittances from Russia to Tajikistan from January to June were only five percent lower than last year. As typical, some households may require assistance during the winter due to localized disasters, such as avalanches and flooding.

    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.
