New course for sustainable development will modernize public service in Kyrgyzstan

The Government of Kyrgyzstan launched its second phase of the PEI programme on July 16 in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Building on the achievements and lessons learned from the previous phase the programme will support the Government of Kyrgyzstan to adopt and implement policies that promote pro-poor environmental sustainability. 

A new course for sustainable development will lead to the modernization of public service in Kyrgyzstan and in this process “I would like to note the special role and contribution of UNDP-UN Environment PEI, which was one of the key actors in the [initial] process of promoting…the ideas of sustainable development in Kyrgyzstan” said Ms. Aidai Kurmanova, State Secretary of the Ministry of Economy, at the launch. 

The successful implementation of an electronic pasture management project in Susamyr is one of the key achievements from the first that now will be replicated to three new provinces, Naryn, Batken and Osh. Electronic pasture management   allows for recording of livestock, vaccination process control, searching of pasture tickets, routes of livestock migration etc.

These reforms enabled the mapping and evaluation of Suusamyr pastures, and users now have a livestock grazing plan that considers the wild migration corridors and pasture flora. This is helping to regulate cattle grazing more effectively, ease pressure on pastures and increase crop yields in the valley. Similar benefits are expected to be experiences in Naryn, Batken and Osh.
