The Kyrgyz Republic is at the early stages of implementation of its National Poverty Reduction Strategy (NPRS), completed in January 2003 to further the process of economic and political reform launched soon after independence and tackle the challenges confronting the new polity after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Russian financial crisis. The case study explores how policy reform fostered support for poverty reduction within and outside government and created the conditions for extensive stakeholders’ participation in the preparation of the NPRS. It highlights that country ownership of its policy content was enhanced by linking the NPRS to a long-term development vision incorporating existing development strategies and initiatives, and embedding its implementation in policy-making structures at the central and local level.
