Central Asia Regional

Language: English | Russian

Stretching from China in the east to the Caspian Sea in the west, the countries of Central Asia have a population of more than 65 million and represent a wide diversity of ethnic groups, languages and clans. The physical landscape is dramatic, ranging from vast steppes to high, rugged mountains, formidable deserts to large rivers, lakes and seas.

USAID’s Mission to Central Asia has partnered with the region’s countries since their independence more than twenty years ago, helping to foster resilient, growth-oriented, inclusive societies. Since independence, each Central Asian country has followed dramatically divergent development trajectories. Some neighborhoods in Central Asia would not be out of place in the developed world; others remain in poverty.

USAID/Central Asia advances the U.S. Government’s Central Asia Strategy, which supports and strengthens the sovereignty and independence of the Central Asian States, individually and as a group; encourages regional connectivity between Central Asia and Afghanistan; promotes rule of law and respect for human rights; and promotes U.S. investment in and development of Central Asia — to foster greater regional stability and prosperity.

USAID/Central Asia is "one Mission, multiple locations," comprising of five offices in four countries. These offices include country offices in the capital cities of Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan; Dushanbe, Tajikistan; Ashgabat, Turkmenistan; and Tashkent, Uzbekistan; as well as a regional office in Almaty, Kazakhstan. While our programs in the Kyrgyz Republic are led by an independent USAID Mission, we partner closely with USAID/Kyrgyz Republic on regional programming.
