The global rise in food prices, significant dependence on food staple imports, and the temporary wheat export bans by the region’s main producers is having a dramatic impact on the lives of millions in Central Asia. This is particularly the case in Tajikistan which has faced a series of natural calamities and poor economic performance over the past few years. This paper reviews the current status of food security, nutritional trends and food balance in the low-income countries of the Central Asia, and wheat production in the region. It proposes a regional agricultural cooperation framework to ensure a sustainable supply of main agricultural crops from net exporting countries of the region.
