15 June 2022
The United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) is a 5-year strategic document of the UN System in the Kyrgyz Republic, which will replace the current programme (UNDAF) for 2018-2022. Since the end of 2021, the UN team has been developing the UNSDCF for 2023-2027, for which, in early March 2022, four strategic priority areas were agreed with the Government, a key partner of the UN. Since March, the UN System has also been holding stakeholder consultations to discuss priority areas and possible formats for future cooperation. This report presents a summary of the UN System’s consultation with business representatives, which took place in the form of a strategic dialogue.
Representative of authoritative (including industrial) business associations, as well as companies from various industries with experience and practice in various sustainable development topics were invited to participate. The expert audience from the business community consisted of representatives of various key sectors of the economy – financial, manufacturing, food, tourism, agriculture and agro-processing, trade, telecommunications, subsoil use, IT and creative industries, as well as from industries conventionally called “green” (energy, renewable energy, waste processing and disposal), and others. The consultation was attended by 39 business participants and 32 representatives of 12 UN agencies in the Kyrgyz Republic.
