The awarding ceremony is organized in the context of the Public Services Improvement Project. This project - with a budget of CHF 4 million over 4 years - helps to improve living conditions of people in rural areas through improved quality of, and access to public services provided by municipalities. It is implemented by Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation in Kyrgyzstan and Development Policy Institute with the financial support of the Government of Switzerland.
In spring this year, a competition called for the best Service Improvement Action Plans amongst municipalities of the Issyk-Kul and Jalal-Abad provinces. One requirement was a contribution of at least 10% of the total amount by municipalities. It turned out, remarkably enough, that applicants committed to co-finance around 30% of the projects. This confirms the importance and urgency of improving local service delivery.
The municipalities will improve service provision for educating and adaptation of the children with special needs; pure drinking water supply; preschool education services; working conditions of the maternity department to provide quality health care services for pregnant women; public utilities and also organize leisure for children and the youth.
After awarding the certificates the municipalities’ representatives will participate in a workshop devoted to better service provision.
