Project Description

UNHCR’s project focuses on one of the most important outstanding issue that hinders the peacebuliding process in the Kyrgyz Republic, the lack of trust both between people and the authorities, and among diverse communities. Often, people do not address the official feedback mechanisms in case a grievance occurs but rather take the law into their own hands which potential causes new grievances or even violent outbreaks. UNHCR, in close cooperation with government partners (LSGA and Ombudsman’s Office) and civil society leaders, will capacitate local self-government bodies to actively attend to people’s complaints, analyze reasons and find adequate solutions.

PBF Priority Area

Promote coexistence and peaceful resolution of conflict

Key Project Activities

At the core of UNHCR’s project lays the establishment/improvement of feedback mechanisms on the local level. The office will set up those mechanisms in at least 20 Ayl-Okmotos/Territorial Councils in the three southern Oblasts (Batken, Osh, and Jalalabad). In order to strengthen the problem solving capacity of local self-government bodies, UNHCR will provide assistance in at least 60 individual cases. This assistance will include every step, from addressing the claim until its final resolution. Thereby, positive precedents of successful and efficient problem by the authorities will be collected. Furthermore, UNHCR will in at least 20 locations provide funding to and ensure sound implementation of peacebuilding initiatives/small to medium scale projects. The projects will address specific grievances in communities, which, if not adequately resolved, could potentially cause new conflict. The small-scale projects will be identified during the feedback mechanism’s dialogue between local self-government bodies and the communities. In addition, UNHCR will constantly monitor (jointly with LSGA and the Ombudsman’s Office) the situation the areas of intervention and provide reports/recommendation to the national government
