Governments of Azerbaijan and the United States Cooperate to Advance Socio-Economic Development in Guba
May 21, 2015

GUBA – On May 19, residents of the Gam-Gam community of Guba rayon, representatives of the local ExCom and the municipality, officials from the Ministry of Economy and Industry (MEI), and U.S. Ambassador to Azerbaijan, Robert F. Cekuta, gathered to mark the successful completion of the construction of four crossings over the Jagajug River. These crossings were constructed under local NGO, UMID, and co-financed by the governments of the United States and Azerbaijan.

Gam-Gam is located in a mountainous area 35 km from Guba center. The Jagajug River runs through Gam-Gam splitting  the village apart, which complicates daily transportation. The situation worsens during the rainy season as there are no bridges at key crossing points. This often affects attendance of many children in school.

To address this issue, the community through the Gam-Gam Community Development Council worked with the SEDA project to construct four bridge crossings over the river system allowing Gam-Gam residents safe and comfortable travel.

Participants discussed recommendations for improving Azerbaijan’s entrepreneurial environment in key areas.

Many civil society organizations (CSO) in Azerbaijan have significant gaps in their ability to develop strategic plans, create effective governance structures, and manage financial control systems and funds. Without these capabilities, CSOs will have greatly diminished ability to use resources effectively to improve the lives of Azerbaijanis.
