The overall goal of the project is that Citizens in Kyrgyzstan profit from increased quality of and access to public services provided by municipalities.

The logic of this intervention is that quality and quantity of public services will increase if municipalities and service providers improve their governance and management capacities in public service delivery, and if governance mechanisms are improved and strengthened, especially oversight mechanisms on local level. This will finally improve living conditions of local citizens.
