Dahana Jamoat is a jamoat (rural municipality) of Kulob District, Khatlon Province, Tajikistan, in central Asia. Its administrative seat is in the town of Dahana. The population of the area was 21,320 in 2008.[1]

The area is almost entirely agricultural, crops and livestock. The farmers utilize the water from the Yakh River (Yakh Su) for irrigation. There is some artisanal mining.

Dahana Jamoat suffers from periodic flooding.[2] In May 2010 unusual heavy precipitation triggered avalanches, floods, mud and rock flows, and landslides throughout Kulob District.[3] On 7 May 2010, in Yokhsuchiyon village, mudflows completely destroyed the school building.[4]
