|23/02/2010 : Letting People’s Voices be Heard|
As part of the decentralization process in Uzbekistan local government and traditional community organizations are being asked increasingly by central government to mobilize local resources to maintain basic infrastructures - a task for which they have as yet limited capacity and experience. This can compromise access to and delivery of basic services in rural areas and have a negative aﬀect on local people’s livelihoods. As a result in some regions there is a risk that social, economic and gender inequalities may increase. The European Unions’s Enhancement of Living Standards (ELS) programme and the Area Based Development (ABD) programme supported by UNDP are twin programmes which together aim to address these problems in 5 regions as part of broader initiatives designed to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
