Sustainable Development Workshop in Kyrgyzstan
On October 17-19 2013 UNDP and the Poverty Environment Initiative in Kyrgyzstan organized a capacity building workshop on the issues of sustainable development. Staff from 22 ministries and agencies were introduced in details to poverty reduction, environment issues and sustainable development processes in Kyrgyzstan. Moreover, the training included sessions on public relations and communications.
“This workshop was very useful. I started working for our agency recently and had no opportunity to learn about key documents like the National Strategy on Sustainable Development or the Programme on Transition to Sustainable Development till 2017. I’m glad that we discussed them in detail during the workshop. It will be easier to promote these issues in future” noted Tamara Valieva, press secretary of the State Agency on Local Self-Governance and Interethnic Affairs under the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic.
The workshop was also highlighted on UNDP's Website.
