USAID’s support to civil society in Central Asia has focused on several different elements of civil society strengthening, including: basic and advanced capacity building; the development of intermediate support organizations to provide support and training to grassroots CSOs in the region; support for policy advocacy efforts; improving the legal and regulatory environment for CSOs; forging connections between CSOs and private sector / government stakeholders; and expanding citizen access to civically-relevant information. These programs have primarily been implemented by international implementing partners, but in recent years, USAID/CA has expanded the number of activities implemented directly by host country partners.

Goal – Cultivate a vibrant and responsive citizen-oriented civil society in Central Asia.
