The Government of Switzerland has allocated 1.75 million soms to six municipalities of Jalal-Abad and Issyk-Kul provinces and the city of Balykchy. Every local authority has received a grant in the amount of 250’000 soms to improve public services at the municipal level.
This support has been provided within the framework of the Swiss funded project "Public services improvement" implemented by consortium of organizations, composed of the Swiss NGO “Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation” and the local NGO “Development Policy Institute”.
The project helps the local authorities to develop a comprehensive plan on improvement of priority public services for local population. Overall, the project aims to improve living conditions in rural areas and solve local issues such as waste collection, street lighting, housing and utility services, access to drinking water and others.
Through this financial assistance, the municipalities will be able to attract professionals, test innovative approaches in public services, and hold trainings for their employees and other interested citizens. Particular attention on the provision of public services will be given to vulnerable people.
It is expected that over the next four years the project will work in close cooperation with the municipalities of Jalal-Abad and Issyk-Kul provinces to provide the local population with quality services.
