"Improved Public Service Delivery and Enhanced Governance in Rural Uzbekistan" is a joint project conducted by the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The overall goal of the project to improve the quality of life of vulnerable sectors of the population in rural areas – such as women, youth and children, the elderly and people with disabilities – by enhancing their access to public services, and the quality of their provision. Equally, the project aims to strengthen citizen participation in the decision-making processes at the local level and increase their access to information, effectively increasing the transparency of the local governance system.

It also delineates a series of activities aiming at strengthening the capacity of local governments and citizens to monitor and provide feedback to Public Services Agency (PSA) for improving the performance of the Public Service Centers (PSCs) in public service delivery; effectively creating a quality control mechanism at the local level.

In addition, taking into account the Government’s recent legislative initiative that expands the powers of local authorities in formulating their budgets, this proposal also includes several activities intended to enable local governments to plan and manage their budgets effectively. It is expected that these activities will encourage wider local community engagement in the budget formulation process by systematically identifying local community needs and prioritising local government interventions based on the environmental, social and economic concerns of local citizens.
