In his Message to the Majlisi Oli of the Republic of Tajikistan "On the main directions of domestic and foreign policy of the Republic", the Leader of the Nation, respected Emomali Rahmon, in his message noted the following: "Taking into account global climate change and the need for the development of "green energy", the Government of the country needs to adopt a Strategy for the development of "green economy" in the Republic of Tajikistan by the end of 2022 and ensure its implementation. Today, 98 percent of electricity in our country is produced from renewable energy sources, that is, using water resources, and Tajikistan is among the 6 leading countries of the planet in terms of the percentage of "green energy" production.
Tajikistan also ranks among the highest in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, the production and use of "green energy" is one of the priorities of the competitiveness of our country's economy. Also, in order to adapt the national economy to global climate change, protect the environment and improve the ecological state of the country, completely exempt from tax and customs payments the import of electric vehicles, that is, electric cars, electric buses, trolleybuses and the like. Due to climate change, an unprecedented increase in the average temperature on the planet Earth and its negative consequences for human life, flora and fauna and glaciers of the country, our scientists should establish research, research and constant monitoring in these areas, together with scientists of the region and the world to develop and implement methods of adaptation to climate change.
Our country makes a significant contribution to solving the problems of the world and the region, including on issues related to water and climate change.
In particular, a number of Tajikistan's initiatives on water problems in the world, recognized at the international level as the "Dushanbe Water Process", have duly represented our country in the international arena.
Currently, the fourth initiative of Tajikistan - the International Decade for Action "Water for Sustainable Development" for 2018-2028, is being implemented at the national, regional and global levels.
At the same time, the focus of our country's attention is the issue of global climate change and the need for joint efforts to eliminate its consequences as serious problems of the modern world.
Over the past few decades, almost a third of the total volume of glaciers in our country has disappeared, of which more than 60 percent of the water resources of the Central Asian region are formed.
Taking this into account, our country, together with its international partners, is making efforts to declare 2025 the International Year of Glacier Protection, the appointment of a World Glacier Day and the formation of the International Glacier Protection Fund. "
In connection with the above, the Founder of Peace and National Unity - the Leader of the Nation, President of the Republic of Tajikistan, respected Emomali Rahmon, workers in the field of environmental protection and hydrometeorology should strengthen their activities at a high level, taking into account the policy of the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan in the field of environmental protection, especially in the field of hydrometeorology for implementation of the initiatives of the Founder of Peace and National Unity - the Leader of the Nation, President of the Republic of Tajikistan, respected Emomali Rahmon, leading our country, the Republic of Tajikistan, to even greater prosperity.
