OUR WORK - SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

 

UNDP’s work in poverty reduction and socio-economic development in general stands on its own as one of the pillars of development work in the Kyrgyz Republic, and has also been integrated into other spheres of operation. The UNDP Poverty Reduction Programme has been operating in Kyrgyzstan since 1998. The programme is implemented at both macro level (policy advice) and micro level (grassroots activities). At the macro level, the programme supports priorities set forth by the Kyrgyz Government through assistance in developing and implementing policies and strategies that support socioeconomic advancement of the poor. To this end, the programme participates in and supports analytical work to help policy makers come to informed decisions.
