The National Admission Test (NAT) is one of the largest projects in the country working against corruption in the education sector. The project is aimed at providing equal and fair access to higher education through transparent and independent testing. Since 2002, the NAT has partnered with the Ministry of Education and Science and is administered by the Center for Educational Assessment and Teaching Methods (CEATM), an independent testing organization. The management of the national testing program by an independent professional organization has been one of its strengths and is a key to the testing results being recognized as merit-based and transparent.

USAID and UNDP have partnered to assist the people of the Kyrgyz Republic in their efforts against corruption and to improve national budget transparency and oversight.  Success in these efforts will increase state efficacy, improve citizens’ trust in government, and reduce the potential for conflict.

This assistance is channeled through oversight institutions such as the Chamber of Accounts, Parliament, civil society, media and other relevant stakeholders.

Since the project began in March 2012, it has conducted 27 events, including two parliamentary hearings, a study tour to Lithuania, and a regional round table for nine countries. These events were attended by 1,390 participants, of whom 38 percent were women. The events, informed by expert analyses and international comparative experience, covered important topics in the areas of anti-corruption, budget oversight, public audits and transparency. In recognition that the battle against corruption requires coherent, strategic engagement, UNDP leverages the efforts of relevant stakeholders to take practical and effective steps in this sector.

The Youth Theater for Peace (YTP) program promotes sustainable conflict prevention and a culture of peace at the community, regional, and national levels through a participatory theater methodology called Drama for Conflict Transformation (DCT). The YTP model equips youth and their adult mentors to lead community-based conflict resolution activities and build trust across ethnic and religious lines. Through DCT theater training, youth and adult participants develop skills to analyze, prevent, and resolve conflict; facilitate and lead conflict resolution activities; and engage audiences in their home communities.
