AKIPRESS.COM - The Minister of Foreign Affairs and the United Nations Resident Coordinator in Turkmenistan signed the Joint Programme, which will contribute to the implementation of the Immediate Socio-Economic Response Plan (SERP) to Acute Infectious Disease Pandemic.
Both sides noted the importance of the joint programme in mitigating the negative impact of the global pandemic on the socio-economic situation in Turkmenistan, with particular focus on the most vulnerable groups. The programme will integrate the human security as a critical approach to plan in times of crisis using the bottom-up approach and the principle of “leaving no one behind.”
The 18-month programme aims to build the capacity of the government officials at the local level to implement the SERP in the communities inspired by the human security approach in ways that are people centered, comprehensive, context specific and preventive. In addition, the programme targets the youth in Lebap and Dashoguz regions to build their resilience and make them agents of change in their communities.
