Social Cohesion Through Community-Based Approaches - Kyrgyz Republic

    This PowerPoint was presented during a panel, "Social Cohesion and Community-Driven Development in Fragile Environments: Lessons from Kyrgyz Republic and Beyond" on May 10, 2017.


    The Kyrgyz Republic’s ‘Social Cohesion Through Community Based Approaches (SoCo)” Project, financed by the World Bank’s State- and Peace-Building Trust Fund and the Aga Khan Foundation, was launched in 2013, with the objective of identifying, piloting and building capacity for social cohesion mechanisms in CDD interventions. The workshop will bring together SoCo project partners – The Aga Khan Foundation, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute and the University of Central Asia – to present the ‘social cohesion index’ developed through the project and lessons from pilot CDD programming focused on enhancing social cohesion outcomes.
