“In today's world, success of a territory is determined not so much by available resources as by the ability and skills to implement new management technologies and harness creative power of the population. An important factor in the success of local self-government is qualitative and conscientious interaction with citizens, providing them with effective opportunities to realize their ideas for organizing life on the territory and making their contribution to the local development. Given the rapidly growing volume of practices and knowledge on this issue, there is an obvious need for their dissemination”, - says Bekbolot Bekiev, the project manager.
The conference is organized by: the State Agency on Civil Service and Local Self-Government under the Cabinet of Ministers of the Kyrgyz Republic, Union of Local Self-Governments of the Kyrgyz Republic, PA “Development Policy Institute” and the Academy of Local Government of Central Asia.
All conference materials and best practice examples will be posted on the LSG Best Practices Portal of the Kyrgyz Republic: www.myktyaimak.gov.kg
The event is dedicated to the completion of the “Voice of Citizens and Accountability of LSG: Budgetary Process” Project financed by the Government of Switzerland and implemented by the Development Policy Institute in the Kyrgyz Republic from 2011 to 2022.
