This policy brief was developed as an output from the Development Dialogue on “Food Security and Nutrition in Kyrgyzstan – Trends, Challenges and the Next Steps” in November 2018. It was organised by the United Nations (UN) system in Kyrgyzstan, and the University of Central Asia’s (UCA) Institute of Public Policy and Administration (IPPA).
The UN-UCA Development Dialogue Series will comprise of six dialogues, organised over the course of one year, to initiate consultation among government, development partners, civil society, private sector and academia on critical development subjects. The objective is to help break down traditional sector silos and enhance horizontal and vertical policy coherence, integration, and partnerships to inform policy formulation in Kyrgyzstan. Each dialogue is designed to include presentations of thematic issues by key stakeholders, a Q&A session, and an open substantive discussion that will be published as a thematic policy brief.
