Support for National Productive Safety Nets and Long-Term Community Resilience

Food insecurity in the Kyrgyz Republic is seasonal and correlated with chronic and increasing poverty. A third of the population of 5.5 million live in poverty, and 14 percent are food-insecure. Gross domestic product has increased, but the impact of growth has not reached the poorest populations. Import dependency exposes domestic food prices to fluctuations. Agriculture, which employs 30 percent of the workforce, is characterized by low levels of productivity, aggregation, processing and marketing. The Kyrgyz Republic is prone to diverse natural disasters and climate risks.
