Country: Kyrgyzstan Project Status: Financially Closed
  Participating Organization:   WFP - World Food Programme
  1.  Purpose
  • Provide the main objectives and expected outcomes of the programme.
  • Explain how the Programme relates to the applicable Strategic (UN) Planning Framework guiding the operations of the Fund/JP2

 Both the first and the second tranche installments received by WFP from the One UN fund are assigned to joint UN programmes devoted to the main objective:

 “to assist the Kyrgyz Government in its efforts to support the reestablishment of livelihoods and food and nutrition security of food insecure communities as well as protecting the lives and livelihoods of those affected by shocks.”

 In the framework of the Food for Work Programme (FFW) WFP joins forces with partner UN agencies, state institutions ranging from local authorities to state ministries, as well as international organizations such as the World Bank and the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The FFW Programme has been realized by WFP in the Kyrgyz Republic since 2010. Starting in 2012, Cash for Work and Food for Training components are in planning for implementation wherever feasible in selected localities.

WFP-supported FFW projects have been strengthening food-security through the improvement of the socio-economic situation. This includes communities taking charge of their own livelihoods by controlling the recurring threats, such as natural disasters and environmental degradation through mitigating measures, which they jointly realize. In addition, FFW projects invest in agricultural infrastructure improvements to create the preconditions for increased agricultural outputs and sustainable livelihoods in rural areas. FFW programmes in localities affected by inter-ethnic tensions and violence in 2010 strengthen social cohesion and peace-building with their emphasis on voluntary participation and the actual joint implementation of the works by ethnically diverse communities. Through their voluntary civic engagement severely food-insecure households are given an opportunity to make valuable and lasting contributions to their own communities while earning an income (food or cash) for their families.

 After completion of each project, communities demonstrate their ability and willingness to take charge of improving their livelihoods by committing to maintain the created assets, which are all designed to have a positive impact on rural livelihoods in the long term. Disaster risk mitigation projects are jointly implemented with the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and their Disaster Risk Management Programme (DRMP), and the Ministry of Emergency Situations (MES).  Rural infrastructure improvements are often realized in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and UN Women.  

Projects where individual vulnerable households are targeted, such as the Vegetable Production Programme for women-headed households, which has been running since 2010 involving a variety of partners (UN Women, FAO, the World Bank, Community Development Alliance), have a direct impact on improved access to food for the direct beneficiaries and indirectly contribute to the poverty reduction of the entire community by reviving local production and supply chains. 

Since the Kyrgyzstan One fund allocations were received very late in 2011 and early in 2012, respectively, this 2011 annual report covers details of the programme planning stage undertaken in late 2011 of projects scheduled to be implemented in 2012.
