Written Message on International Women’s Day

Russian version>>>

New York, 8 March 2017

Women’s rights are human rights. But in these troubled times, as our world becomes more unpredictable and chaotic, the rights of women and girls are being reduced, restricted and reversed.

Empowering women and girls is the only way to protect their rights and make sure they can realize their full potential.

Historic imbalances in power relations between men and women, exacerbated by growing inequalities within and between societies and countries, are leading to greater discrimination against women and girls. Around the world, tradition, cultural values and religion are being misused to curtail women’s rights, to entrench sexism and defend misogynistic practices.

UN in Tajikistan welcomes customs agreement entering into force

(Dushanbe, 21 December 2016) – People affected by large-scale disasters in Tajikistan can now be reached with vital international assistance faster than before. A customs agreement between the Government of Tajikistan and the United Nations in Tajikistan has entered into force. The first of its kind in Central Asia, the agreement will simplify the import, export and transit of humanitarian relief goods in large-scale emergencies.
 
Since 1970, such customs agreements have been common practice globally, especially, in countries prone to disasters. With the growing number of disasters and climate change effects, more countries are investing in emergency preparedness.
 
Tajikistan is susceptible to a wide range of natural hazards: earthquakes, floods, landslides, mudslides, and others. In the last 10 years, some 3 million people or a third of the total population of Tajikistan have suffered as a result of natural disasters.
 
“Together with the Government of Tajikistan, we have been developing this customs agreement since 2014. Therefore, its signing in April 2016 and the coming into force this fall already constitute a significant achievement,” noted Mr. Valijon Ranoev, OCHA humanitarian advisory team representative. “Although the agreement is just one component in a set of preparedness measures, its significance stems from the fact that it will save time and significantly speed up the delivery of aid to people affected by large-scale emergencies”.
 
“The international humanitarian system is improving each year. Around the world, we are increasingly able to save more lives and respond faster than before to the needs of all people affected by emergencies – children, women, the elderly and men,” said Ms. Pratibha Mehta, the United Nations Resident Coordinator in Tajikistan. “However, disasters are happening more often and with greater severity. We need to be prepared to respond quickly. The Customs agreement will help cut down on bureaucratic procedures and expedite response,” stressed Ms. Mehta.

ООН В ТАДЖИКИСТАНЕ ПРИВЕТСТВУЕТ ПОДПИСАНИЕ ТАМОЖЕННОГО СОГЛАШЕНИЯ
 
(Душанбе, 21 декабря 2016) – Теперь международная помощь будет доходить быстрее до людей, пострадавших в результате крупномасштабных бедствий в Таджикистане. Первое в Центральной Азии таможенное соглашение по упрощению процедур импорта, экспорта и транзита гуманитарных грузов при крупномасштабных чрезвычайных ситуациях вступило в силу в Республике Таджикистан.
 
Подобные соглашения заключаются во всем мире, в частности, в странах, наиболее подверженных риску стихийных бедствий. Впервые мировое сообщество признало необходимость принятия подобных мер в 1970 г. С ростом бедствий и в связи с воздействием изменения климата все больше стран вкладывают в готовность к реагированию.
 
Как известно, Таджикистан подвержен широкому спектру природных угроз: землетрясения, наводнения, оползни, сели и другие. За последние десять лет около 3 миллионов человек или треть населения Таджикистана пострадали в результате этих бедствий.
 
«Данное соглашение тщательно разрабатывалось с 2014 года совместно с Правительством Республики Таджикистан, поэтому его подписание в апреле этого года и вступление в силу этой осенью является достижением,» - отметил г-н Валиджон Раноев, гуманитарный советник Управления ООН по координации гуманитарных вопросов. «Хотя это только один из компонентов целого комплекса мер по улучшению готовности в нашей стране, его значимость в том, что в случае крупных бедствий, требующих международной помощи, можно будет избежать потери времени и своевременно доставить помощь до пострадавших».
 
 «Международная гуманитарная система с каждым годом совершенствуется.  В разных уголках мира нам удается спасать все больше жизней и более оперативно удовлетворять нужды всех пострадавших людей – детей, женщин, пожилых людей и мужчин,» - добавила г-жа Пратибха Мехта, Постоянный Координатор ООН в Таджикистане. «Однако бедствия происходят все чаще и наносят все больший урон. Мы должны быть готовы реагировать быстро. Данное таможенное соглашение позволит сократить бюрократию и ускорить реагирование на бедствия,» - подчеркнула г-жа Мехта.
