Project summary

The main purpose of the Project is to form a radiation map of the Republic of Tajikistan on the basis of holding radiation monitoring of the coal producer territories and areas of uranium extraction by opened methods, tailing dumps, burial of radioactive wastes, in Soghd region and Rasht valley.

The Project participants intend to inspect some spots of radioactive burial in Tajikistan. More specifically they will check the safety condition of the spots and determine how far they meet the prescribed technical and sanitary norms.

Likewise, the group will check the medical safety of populated environment, and will give some recommendations for the improvement of the inventory, keeping, exploitation, transportation conditions, and safety of the IRS.

Supervision restore over radioactivity levels of environment has become an urgent problem in modern Tajikistan in the light of the recent nuclear weapon’s tests by its neighbors such as Pakistan, India, China and the other neighboring countries. These test are probably one of the main causes for the radioactive infection of Tajikistan’s territory.
