Kyrgyz Republic: Emergency Assistance for Recovery and Reconstruction
In April 2010, the Kyrgyz Republic experienced political disturbances that resulted in many deaths and injuries, property damage, and a change in government. In June 2010, community violence caused greater casualties, internal displacement, and physical damage and losses. The number of households living below the poverty threshold was estimated at 32% in 2009. There was an urgent need for fiscal support, to help the government implement its countercyclical fiscal stimulus to (i) fuel economic growth, (ii) provide shelter (before the onset of winter), and (iii) ensure food security and restore livelihoods.
The project consisted of a loan and a grant from the ADB's Special Funds resources to support economic recovery and the reconstruction and improvement of social and urban infrastructure in affected areas in the provinces of Osh and Jalal-Abad, and the cities of Osh and Jalal-Abad following the conflicts in April and June 2010.
