UNDP is working to provide policy makers with effective economic analysis and forecasting tools, which they can use in assessing the implications of the recent global financial crisis on the country, in identifying future policy directions, and in formulating sector and regional development programs.
The Government of Uzbekistan is still facing the implications of both the recent global financial crisis and the food and water crisis on the country's economy and the well-being of its population. In order to adequately respond to development challenges, and to apply the right policy options, the Government of Uzbekistan needs to undertake a solid assessment of the situation and produce balanced forecasts for future developments in the short and medium terms. Taking into account the necessity of conducting thorough economic analysis and forecasting, the government has established the Institute of Forecasting and Macroeconomic Research (IFMR).
The project has contributed to enhancing human and institutional capacity, and to developing methodologies suited to Uzbekistan’s conditions that would enable the objective analysis of the national economy, as well as providing well-grounded economic forecasts and growth scenarios. The project also supports the development of country-specific methodologies for the analysis of economic growth factors and poverty indicators, for balancing medium term macroeconomic forecasting parameters, and for formulating regional development strategies.
