The
objective of the project is to support the City Government of Tashkent in the
development and implementation of the “Tashkent 2025: Transformation Strategy for Development of Resilient
Tashkent” which is currently under development. Specifically, the project aims to give
decision-makers in the Tashkent Municipality a clear view of city-level shock
events, risk factors and medium- to long-term stresses – that can then feed
into the City’s longer-term development strategy. Through the assessment and
utilization of hazard and vulnerability data, the project is expected to
support the following outcomes: i) development of a macro-level risks and
hazards profile; ii) development of urban resilience elements in the overall
development strategy for Tashkent; iii) development of a short to medium terms investment
plan aimed at increasing Tashkent’s resilience; and iv) improvements in
Tashkent’s municipal governance to enhance its preparedness and response
capacity.
