Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) - Kyrgyz Republic, 2020-2025

Speeches Shim

The goal of the USAID/Kyrgyz Republic’s 2020-2025 Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) is: A more inclusive and prosperous Kyrgyz Republic is a leader for democracy and independence in the region. USAID views Kyrgyz independence as a necessary precursor to self-reliance. Throughout this CDCS, USAID will aim to strengthen Kyrgyz independence by reducing disinformation, and corruption, and improving the rule of law and respect for human rights. Key approaches will include creating forums for meaningful citizen input, and supporting the development of inclusive political systems, diversified economic opportunities, and improved service delivery for the people of the Kyrgyz Republic.

USAID will advance the CDCS goal through two development objectives (DOs), DO1: strengthened democratic values and citizen-centered governance; and DO2: robust and diversified economic opportunities for the people of the Kyrgyz Republic. These development objectives align directly with the Kyrgyz Government’s development priorities, namely: anti-corruption and judicial reform; regional development and local government capacity; reversal of labor migration by expanding opportunities at home; and improvements in the delivery of health and education services. This strategic direction also reflects the Country Roadmap of the Journey to Self-Reliance (J2SR). The body of evidence strongly supports that the elements and approaches highlighted through these DOs are the best route to strengthening the host government's capacity to achieve self-reliance.
