Tajikistan increased clearance output significantly in 2021 compared to the previous year. However, total cluster munition contamination increased significantly from 0.08km2 at the end of 2020 to more than 1.8km2 at the end of 2021, due to the identification of new contaminated areas.
- Tajikistan should accede to the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) as a matter of priority.
- Tajikistan should comply with its obligations under international human rights law to clear CMR on territory under its jurisdiction or control as soon as possible.
- The Tajikistan National Mine Action Center (TNMAC) should conduct survey to clarify the extent of remaining contamination and ensure timely clearance and release of the cluster munition-contaminated areas.
