VSO Tajikistan is implementing a project for the UK government conflict pool.

With funding from DFID, FCO and MOD the conflict pool focuses on initiatives which aim to achieve enhanced peace and security within and between states and their populations in Central Asia. In line with the strategy of VSO Tajikistan this project focuses on improving cross-border trade and investment in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast of Tajikistan alongside the border with Afghanistan. The project partners are Free Economic Zone (FEZ) Ishkoshim and Milal-Inter. The project will work with FEZ Ishkoshim to attract international investment to the region and with Milal-Inter to improve the trading opportunities at cross-border markets in Khorog and Ishkoshim.
