Our focus

Kyrgyzstan and UNDP in action

Integrated development solutions driven by country priorities and UNDP’s new Strategic Plan.

Our Strategic Plan 2022-2025 introduces the evolution of #NextGenUNDP into #FutureSmartUNDP. More than a mantra, it is our new benchmark for success in the future of development. Building on UNDP’s 50 years of expertise across 170 countries, this new approach allows us to focus and prioritize where country demands are greatest. By working together in this way, we aim to expand people’s choices for a fairer, sustainable future, with people and planet in balance.

Environment, Climate Change and Disaster Risks Management

uilding resilience to conflicts and disasters is at the very heart of UNDP's work. We work with national and international partners to prevent, manage, and recover from conflicts, natural disasters, and other emergency situations. UNDP leads various initiatives to conflict-sensitive policy development and provides technical assistance to strengthen the capacity of government institutions.

Our Environment, Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management cluster cooperates with various partners – international and development agencies, financial institutions, and the private sector – to access climate financing mechanisms for mitigation and adaptation, focusing on improved climate resilience of agricultural livelihoods. Sustainable and smart solutions are developed and supported at national and subnational levels for the transparent, accountable, and sustainable management of natural resources, renewable energy, ecosystem services, chemicals, and waste, for better livelihoods. National and subnational governments are strengthened to implement gender-responsive disaster risk reduction strategies, risk management capacities, and livelihood and recovery choices.

UNDP is committed to helping Kyrgyzstan to expand access to green solutions and make environmental issues an integral part of development. We promote sustainable environmental management, climate action and disaster risk reduction. Our partnership with the Government, local authorities, research institutions, and communities allows us to assist in the adoption of sustainable policies, carry out comprehensive research and roll out green initiatives in every region of the country.
Our Sustainable and Inclusive Economic Growth cluster supports Kyrgyzstan both macro level (policy advice) and micro level (grassroots activities). We support priorities set forth by the Kyrgyz Government through assistance in developing and implementing policies and strategies that support socioeconomic advancement for the country. In this end, the programme participates in and supports analytical work to help policy makers come to better informed decisions.

Programme activities prioritize women, youth, ethnic minorities, and people with disabilities to benefit from improved services and infrastructure, vocational education and training, access to resources, and sustainable jobs and livelihoods.

Jointly with other UN agencies and development partners, UNDP is committed to supporting urban and rural communities, especially those with high poverty rates and conflict-prone areas, in implementing comprehensive, risk-informed, and area-based development interventions.
