Situation Overview

The situation in the country and in the South remains calm but tense. There is a need to closely monitor the security situation while the outcome of the parliamentary election is finalised and coalition building is undertaken.

On September 13, the President of the Kyrgyz Republic, Rosa Otunbaeva, along with key central and regional government officials, met with representatives of UN agencies, international organizations, inter-national NGOs, and local NGOs operating in southern Kyrgyzstan. Representatives from the UN reported on their main concerns and current needs. International NGOs outlined four key areas where programs need to shift during the post-conflict period to prevent the resurgence of conflict. These were good governance; civil society development; economic deve-lopment (jobs, money, resources); and child protection and development (longer-term conflict prevention).
