ECHO Humanitarian Aid Office
ECHO has been present in Tajikistan since 1992, where it opened an office in 1993, when it funded relief operations for the victims of the civil war which caused a major humanitarian crisis. ECHO responded with humanitarian funding mostly for projects in Tajikistan, and some in Kyrgyzstan. As of 2003, ECHO’s focus has shifted to disaster risk reduction under the DIPECHO programme, which was gradually joined by all countries of Central Asia.
