What is the public problem that the commitment will address? The currently calculated index of public confidence in government bodies does not cover local governments, except for the cities of Bishkek and Osh. Thus, local governments have less incentive to take into account needs of their citizens in their daily work and activities.
What is the commitment? Changes to the regulation on calculation of the population confidence index will be developed and approved, and pilot calculation of the population confidence index for local governments will be carried out in all regions of the country.
How will the commitment contribute to solve the public problem? Citizens will have more opportunities to influence activities of the local governments by expressing opinions on results of their work.
Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? Citizen Participation: Citizens will be involved in evaluating the local governments’ activities.
