Republic of Tajikistan: Case study Report for EACH FOR project
In all regions, different kinds of environmental degradation are observed, but the population continues to live there since it has no financial capability to leave and/or they do they wish to leave their native land. The migration of the population as a result of environmental degradation is a complex phenomenon; its magnitude could grow exponentially, if the necessary nature conservation measures are not undertaken. Furthermore, with the current steady growth of the population the pressure on the environment is growing. It is very difficult to project the development of migratory processes related to environmental factors because of the complex relationships. However, it is necessary to continue this line of investigation. This study has shown that environmentally forced migration interacts with many other factors that have fundamental importance, but environmental degradation is certainly a primary force for migration.
