Tajikistan is home to the world's second large deposit of silver, Koni Mansur, which is situated in the north of country. With annual extraction of 50 tonnes of silver, the deposit will last for 150 years. The country is also rich with deposits of precious stones, uranium (16% of world’s reserves), gold, coal, aluminum and polymetallic ores.

Tajikistan's extractive sector remains underdeveloped, but looks to increase -  there are significant growth potentials in the oil and gas  industries and more than 400 deposits of mineral resources and ores have been found, explored and prepared for development in the country.

About the campaign

In August 2011, 21 Tajikistani NGOs founded the “Transparency for Development” coalition. Since then, the coalition has been working on an informational campaign to promote EITI and fight corruption and poverty in Tajikistan - particularly at the sub-national level. The coalition aims to work closely with Tajik government on effective revenues management so that the population in poor regions can benefit from the extractive activity taking place in their localities. The affiliated coalition will also work for Tajikistan to make the most of its pilot on beneficial ownership within EITI.
