Strengthening the accountability, effectiveness, and transparency of government institutions.


Since 2015, the Governance Support Program (GSP) has worked with members of Parliament, ministries, civil society organizations, international partners, and the private sector of Turkmenistan to strengthen the accountability, effectiveness, and transparency of government institutions in Turkmenistan. This program is implemented by Q2 Impact.


Goal One 

Improve public administration of the Government of Turkmenistan by increasing capacity of civil services across all public institutions, increasing public sector accountability and transparency, and strengthening technological systems to facilitate public service delivery.

Goal Two 

Strengthen policy development and lawmaking processes by increasing evidence-based policy development and lawmaking including mechanisms for civic participation and improving processes for citizen consultations.
