It will be implemented by the Eurasia Foundation of Central Asia (EFCA) with the financial support of USAID through USAID Ukuk Bulagy Project.
The endeavor intends to improve inter-sectoral interaction and strengthen institutional capacity of Community Prevention Centers (CPC). EFCA plans to work with 8 aiyl aimaks of Ton district, Issyk-Kul province, and Nookat district, Osh province, as well as 5 municipal territorial administrations (MTA) of Sverdlovsk district, Bishkek city.
As practice shows, representatives of such structures as local courts, police, municipalities, aksakals’ courts, women’s health councils and civic activists take part in the work of CPCs. FECA’s experience on this track proves that their members are active in promoting civic initiatives.
In the course of the project implementation, it is planned to improve CPC member’s legal knowledge and familiarize them with effective mediation techniques. FECA will conduct capacity building trainings for the CPCs on strategic management and organizational development, crime prevention, domestic violence, gender and other legal issues. Project mediators will review offence cases in the target areas and offer recommendations for reducing them. In addition, Guidelines for CPC Development will be designed to assist CPC members in programming strategic policy documents.
