Uzbekistan Aid Effectiveness Project

Project Goal


The overall objective of the project is to improve the effectiveness of aid flowing into Uzbekistan in the long-term perspective, and to strengthen capacities of the relevant Government institutions in the better coordination, management and mobilisation of external resources at country and sector levels.  In particular, the objective of the project is to set up mechanisms, systems, policy guidelines and government procedures regulating delivery, analysis and implementation of externally funded programs and projects. These programs and projects will work towards enhanced ownership of results, harmonisation, alignment, results orientation and accountability of external aid by, among others, customising the best international practices and solutions in aid coordination and management.

Expected results


  • Development and implementation of a Partnership Agreement between the Government and Development Partners, to provide a framework for joint work towards improving aid coordination and effectiveness, as well as systems and mechanisms in place, including institutional and human resources capacity, to coordinate and regulate aid flows in Uzbekistan. This will be achieved through improved aid architecture, the introduction of a results framework and customisation of aid effectiveness indicators and respective assessment processes;
  • Improvement of aid effectiveness at a sector level, though enhanced capacity in formulation and management of project portfolios, as well as the better prioritisation and improvement of results based orientation;
  • Establish an Aid Information Management System in line with international standards, to allow recording, financial and thematic tracking, the results monitoring of projects and programs, and the transparent sharing of aid-related information. The AIMS will be hosted and administered by the MoF’s aid coordination department.
