Fostering high-productivity, diversified and knowledge-based economic growth

The Government of Kazakhstan acknowledges the importance of nurturing human capital for a novel economic growth model and increased productivity. A prime objective is establishing a platform for a knowledge-based economy, connecting education with employers' needs by upskilling the workforce and encouraging innovation to meet technology-driven future demands.

Collaborating with educational institutions, businesses, and incubators, the UNDP enhances the employment-related resilience and professional skills of young men and women. This modernization initiative aligns with broader private sector development and market competitiveness enhancement.

To foster the enabling environment for local economic development, UNDP supports the design and implementation of territorial development programmes for the most deprived areas of Kazakhstan.
