The project will assist municipalities in four oblasts of Kyrgyzstan.

Through partnership with USAID’s project, the municipalities will improve management practices to deliver key municipal services, such as water supply, waste removal, and operation of public spaces, more effectively.

The municipalities will improve financial sustainability of these services by introducing appropriate tariffs, increasing revenues, partnering with local entrepreneurs, and using IT solutions.

The project will work with the municipalities to strengthen their accountability by encouraging citizens to provide feedback about the quality of the municipal services. The municipalities will improve engagement of citizens in overseeing the local budgets.

As part of the project, municipalities will exchange their experiences and best practices in service delivery at national and regional events. They will work together to find and implement best solutions to local challenges.

At the national level, the project will support practical measures and legislative initiatives to strengthen local governments.
