Tajikistan - Market Report, April 2011
In February 2011 WFP conducted, together the NGO Zerkalo, a survey of wholesale and retail food markets in urban and rural Tajikistan. The purpose of the survey was to improve our understanding of the structure of the retail and wholesale food markets within the country. The efficiency of these markets has a direct impact on the availability and access of food to households in Tajikistan and therefore also has a direct impact on the food security of all members of the population. The results are compared with those from a survey of rural markets carried out in 2008 which were published in the 2008 Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA) Report.
