Kyrgyzstan experience in reforming and monetizing social privileges


During the work on the pilot project on Improving the mechanism of privileges provision, a report on Kyrgyzstan experience in monetizing housing, fuel and transportation privileges was prepared.  For more than a decade, the Kyrqyz Government has been reforming the system of privileges to increase the targeting of social support, but privileges are still enjoyed by non-poor population. Therefore, the Government aims to continue reforming the privileges system. At the same time, the measures to improve the targeting of a single monthly benefit, which is granted upon means-testing, are also carried out.
