Ensuring the proper operation of the hydro-technical facilities in Tajikistan is highly prioritized for the avoidance of irreversible damages to infrastructure, properties, natural environment and human health.
To this end, in December 2010 the Tajik government adopted a new Law on the ¡§Safety of Hydraulic Structures.¡¨ For the implementation of this legislative document, the government has established in September 2014 the State Control Service for the Safety of Hydraulic Structures at the Ministry of Energy and Water Resources (MEWR) of the Republic of Tajikistan.
The State Service is an institution, which aims at regulating the safety of hydraulic structures within the territory of Tajikistan, as well as enforcing the state control in these systems.
For the last few years, OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe (POiD) supported MEWR in hiring a group of national experts to develop rules for the establishment and capacity building of the State Service. A series of normative and legal documents were developed and revised. In additional the web site was developed and supported by the Office.
In this context, The OSCE POiD will continue to assist the State Service in capacity building events through a three days training on mobile laboratory equipment. In this regard, two national experts will be hired to conduct a three days training including theoretical and practical aspects of Safety of Hydro Technical facilities. The experts will be also responsible for development of the practical guide, based on manuals on how to operate the equipment The experts will be hired for three months from 01.09.2018 until 30.11.2018. One and half month for development of the practical guide and one and a half month for development of the draft program of the training, selection of the participants and other preparations to the event.
In 2016 and 2017 the Office supported a group of national experts with purpose to revise the earlier developed documents and develop the new necessary ones. The OSCE POiD will continue to assist the State Service in capacity building events through a three days training on mobile laboratory equipment. In this regard, two national experts will be hired to develop a practical guide, based on the manuals on how to operate the equipment and conduct the aforementioned training.
