ADB-Kyrgyz Republic Partnership Strategy

The overarching goal of ADB’s country partnership strategy (CPS), 2013-2017 for the Kyrgyz Republic is poverty reduction through inclusive economic growth.

ADB will help the government achieve inclusive economic growth by addressing key constraints to economic growth, improving the investment climate, and reducing disparities in access to economic opportunities. It will do this by helping reform legal and regulatory frameworks to improve the business environment, expand access to affordable finance across the country, improve the reliability of electricity services, help people become more employable, maintain and enhance connectivity, and reduce the gaps between regions in levels of basic infrastructure and services. ADB is already active in these areas. However, a sharper focus on addressing regional disparities is needed in each of these sectors.

The strategic thrust of the country operations business plan, 2017-2019 is aligned with the strategic objectives and priorities of the CPS. It will focus on public sector management for private sector development, transport and logistics, energy, education and training, and water supply and sanitation.

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.

In preparing any country program or strategy, financing any project, or by making any designation of, or reference to, a particular territory or geographic area in this document, the Asian Development Bank does not intend to make any judgments as to the legal or other status of any territory or area.
