Participation of the Minister of Energy and Water Resources of Tajikistan in the World Congress on Hydropower in Jakarta.

The Minister of Energy and Water Resources of Tajikistan, Mr. Daler Juma, led a delegation from the Republic of Tajikistan to participate in the three-day World Congress on Hydropower, which concluded on November 2nd in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. He emphasized the importance of transitioning to hydropower and preserving oil and gas reserves for future generations.
In his presentation, Juma discussed the hydropower potential of Tajikistan, the country’s goals for water, energy, and climate, initiatives for the regional electricity transmission market in Central, South, Western Asia, and the Eurasian region, and the problems and opportunities in implementing the country’s current and planned projects.
He noted that the hydropower of Central and South Asia has significant potential for regional development and transition to zero emissions. The use of hydropower reserves can contribute greatly to energy security and economic development in the face of rapid population growth and energy demand in the region.
Juma also highlighted that water plays a key role in ensuring food security, as 80% of agricultural products are produced on irrigated lands. He expressed gratitude to the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, for organizing such authoritative energy events.
During the congress, Juma met with the President of the International Hydropower Association (IHA), former Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull, and expressed gratitude for awarding the Gold Certificate to the Sebzor HPP, which was built in compliance with international quality standards and environmental requirements.
Turnbull, in turn, noted the possibility of holding the World Hydropower Congress in 2025 in Tajikistan, considering the country’s large hydropower potential.
