The development of a public-private partnership (PPP) framework and identification of projects is a key output of the Investment Climate Improvement Program. To ensure that the Kyrgyz Republic is able to successfully implement PPPs, training and increased awareness of PPPs within the government is needed. PPP capacity building support for the government is part of the technical assistance (TA) for economic policy and management, which is included in the Country Operations Business Plan for 2011-2012. This TA was split in two TAs comprising the proposed S-CDTA and support for preparation of the country partnership strategy.

|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
The government realizes the need to invest in infrastructure to fuel economic growth. Hence, ambitious targets for economic growth of 4.2% on an average annual basis have been set up. To achieve and sustain such growth, the government plans to spend at least 10% of GDP on infrastructure. The government realizes that infrastructure needs cannot be met from the government budget and external aid alone and, hence, private sector financing, both domestic and foreign, needs to be mobilized. Private investments in the infrastructure sector can be achieved through PPPs or privatization of existing infrastructure enterprises.
PPPs, a contractual partnership between the government and the private sector, is new in the Kyrgyz Republic and there is a need for intensive capacity building in government ministries and agencies. Earlier, with technical assistance from the Asian Development Bank (ADB), inter-ministerial workshops on PPPs were arranged in June 2008. Since policy reform is the core activity for initiating PPPs, ADB has been supporting the development of a PPP framework in the Kyrgyz Republic through the Investment Climate Improvement Program (ICIP). Subprogram 1 of ICIP was successfully completed in September 2008 and Subprogram 2 (SP2) is underway. A key condition under SP2 is the submission of a PPP Law to the Parliament and identification of candidate projects that can be taken up for development with the PPP format. It also calls for operationalizing the PPP Unit and Risk Management Unit.
