Monitoring of the Sustainable Development Goal Indicators in the Kyrgyz Republic
The Compendium contains statistical data that monitors achievement of the 16 Sustainable Development Goal, characterizing the main social-economic indicators of public life in 2010 and 2014-2018. The Compendium was prepared using data received by state statistical bodies from enterprises, organizations, the general public, and also administrative sources.

Voluntary National Review on the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals in the Kyrgyz Republic
The preparation process of the Voluntary National Review of the Sustainable Development Goals in the Kyrgyz Republic was a collective multi-stakeholder and multi-sectoral endeavor based on partnership with all stakeholders. The Voluntary National Review of the Sustainable Development Goals in the Kyrgyz Republic reflects an assessment of the basic approaches applicable in the country in terms of achieving the SDGs, evaluating challenges and successes, and identifying areas where further work is needed. The first Voluntary National Review of the Sustainable Development Goals in the Kyrgyz Republic covers an assessment of 16 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 14 has not been assessed). The Voluntary National Review also includes information related to the COVID-19 situation and measures taken by the country to combat the pandemic.
COVID-19 Impacts on Livelihoods of Women and Men in the Kyrgyz Republic
It is clear that the pandemic has differently impacted women and men around the globe, restricting their economic empowerment and deepening gender inequality and genderbased violence. This is first of all due to the loss of income sources, including among women entrepreneurs who traditionally work in service industries, higher risks for women working in healthcare, social protection and education systems, and increased domestic workloads as a result of self-isolation. In Kyrgyzstan, this situation has its own specifics due to the country’s geographic location and economic dependence on the neighboring countries related to high labor outmigration. The results of GRA in Kyrgyzstan show that women, particularly from vulnerable groups facing multiple discrimination, have suffered more from the crisis than men.
