Project ID:00079230Description:KGZ (Risk Reduct) - Civic Enga
Kyrgyzstan One Fund
Start Date *: 21 Nov 2011
Risk Management
End Date*: 31 Dec 2013
Country: Kyrgyzstan Project Status: Financially Closed
  Participating Organization:   UNDP - UNDP(MDTF/PUNO only).

Objective: Realistic and sustainable capacity of volunteerism and civic engagement in disaster risk reduction sphere identified and effectively operationalized in order to scale up results in DRMP further activities in highly disaster prone areas

Expected outcome: Capacity of civic engagement and volunteer driven initiatives in disaster risk management identified and strengthened at the local levels    

The Programme relates to the following strategic documents:

UNDAF 2005-2011 Outcomes:

A 2. “Poor and vulnerable groups have increased and more equitable access to quality basic social services and benefits, in a strengthened pro-poor environment”

B.1 “Good governance reforms and practices institutionalized at all levels of Government, civil society organizations and the private sector towards poverty reduction, protection of rights and sustainable human development” 

Expected Country Programme Outcomes:

A.5.1. “Enhanced response to and mitigation of natural disasters improves living conditions for the poor”.

B.1.1. “Capacity of governance bodies strengthened both at central and local levels for national governance reforms”.    

Expected CPAP Outputs:

A.5.1.1. “Capacity of communities for disaster management strengthened”


There was insignificant progress towards the outcome due to delayed allocation of funds (in December 2011).

However, some preparatory arrangements were undertaken during reporting period:

-        Capacity of organizations in volunteerism and of civic engagement in disaster risk management identified, mechanisms of their functioning and coordination with central and local authorities as well as local communities established. Progress made: a) Terms of References for local experts were developed for elaboration of training modules and conducting first medical aid b) based on research target local self-governments were selected jointly with MES

-        Capacity of volunteerism and civic engagement in the sphere of disaster risk management sustained and effectively operationalized through demonstrating best practices, piloting and testing disaster risk reduction/climate change adaptation measures and approaches to improve local coping capacities. Progress made: a) Terms of References for local experts were developed for elaboration of information materials b) potential mitigation projects were identified and prioritized jointly with community members and local authorities c) contribution of WFP in the form of food was coordinated.       

Key outputs achieved:

-        3 Terms of References were developed on: a) elaboration of training modules b) development of information materials and c) conducting first medical aid

-        20 local self-governments were selected jointly with MES in one of the most remote and high-altitude regions of the country such as Chong-Alay, Alay, Kara-Kulja (Alaikuu zone), Toktogul (Sary-Kamysh zone), Toguz-Toroo and Chatkal districts. The following criteria was applied: a) general socio-economic and demographic situation, availability of critical infrastructure b) exposure to disasters c) poverty rate d) interest of local governments e) level of coverage with donor community’s interventions f) climatic and geographical conditions. Exposure of selected LSGs to disasters varies from 3rd level of danger (significant exposure) and 4th level of exposure (highly exposed). The least poverty rate among selected LSGs stands at 12,64% and the highest one is at 91,04%. The average poverty rate is 54,6%. In most of the selected LSGs intensive snowfalls are registered with around 1 m. in depth, which cause to avalanches and long-time closure of roads leading to district/province administrative centers. On the other hand, extreme meteorological hazards are being reported each year (drastic changes of weather, frosts, heavy precipitation). Selected LSGs are poorly covered by donor community. Total number of beneficiaries of target LSGs is 36194 people (men – 19102; women- 16506, including children - 9269 and elderly - 3070).       

Major constraints were caused by late allocation of funds. Other constraints which may cause delays in implementation relate to weather conditions, i.e. early and long-lasting winter. To this end the mitigation projects must be fully implemented during May-September months.   

The project will closely collaborate with the Ministry of Emergency Situations (MES), Ministry of Youth Affairs and State Agency on Construction and Regional Development (SACRD), and WFP. Such triangular engagement of national partners allows ensuring national ownership and sustainability of project results due to following factors:

-        MES is a central authority of the Government for policy development in DRR and carry  respective development agendas forward

-        Ministry of Youth Affairs is a lead authority to strengthen capacity of volunteerism, youth movements, as well as civic engagement and sustain their capacities 

-        SACRD is a central authority to mainstream sustained capacities of civic engagement into DRR at the local level.  

Two key indicators were identified under the approved Project Document:

-        Supportive guidelines, legislative documents and by-laws developed and submitted to the Government. Progress: there is no progress on this indicator, since none of the activities were implemented due to delays of funds

Improved infrastructure at local level (# of mitigation projects in collaboration with MES implemented). Progress:  A set of mitigation projects have been identified in 2011, however in 2012 it needs for updates.
