Inclusive and Sustainable Growth

UNDP’s work to enhance economic development in the Republic of Uzbekistan comes at an important time, as it continues its gradual economic transition and works to overcome hurdles appearing in the process. UNDP is working to improve economic governance in Uzbekistan, while working with civil society and the private sector to generate employment opportunities, improve rural livelihoods, introduce micro-finance and business advisory services, facilitate cross-learning and encourage entrepreneurship.


UNDP has worked with national NGOS and government partners to achieve its objectives, working to conduct grassroots programs to benefit local communities while providing policy advice and building national capacities in key economic areas, in order to increase employment and limit poverty. It also works to enhance the Government of Uzbekistan’s ability to develop and pursue cross-sectorial policies, and to provide support at a regional level for formulating regional and local development strategies. more
