Optimising the primary school meals programme - Kyrgyz Republic

200176

After a period of impressive economic growth between 1998-2008, the Kyrgyz Republic has been hit hard by the global financial crisis, recurrent political crises, social unrest, inter-ethnic violence, public financing shortfalls and food price volatility. These have a heavy impact on the most vulnerable households. Earlier gains in poverty reduction are being reversed: absolute poverty increased from 34 percent in 2010 to 37 percent in 2011, increasing the need for efficient and effective social safety nets.
