Workshop on Social Cohesion and Community-Driven Development in Fragile Environments: Lessons from Kyrgyz Republic and Beyond

The workshop, co-hosted by World Bank GSURR/social development, CDD Global Solutions Group, Aga Khan Foundation and the State and Peace-building Fund (SPF), will take place on 10 May 2017.

The Kyrgyz Republic’s ‘Social Cohesion Through Community Based Approaches (SoCo)” Project, financed by the World Bank’s State- and Peace-Building Trust Fund and the Aga Khan Foundation, was launched in 2013, with the objective of identifying, piloting and building capacity for social cohesion mechanisms in CDD interventions.

The workshop will bring together SoCo project partners to present the ‘social cohesion index’ (Tilman Brück and Damir Esenaliev) developed through the project and lessons from pilot CDD programming focused on enhancing social cohesion outcomes. Discussants will include World Bank staff seeking to apply social cohesion approaches in CDD and other programming in FCV contexts elsewhere to exchange lessons learned and to consider future applications.
