First online lesson on budget transparency


The Central Asian Research Institute on Corruption and Money Laundering launched an online school for representatives of civil society institutions and activists as part of the project “Strengthening the Network for the Prevention of Corruption in the Kyrgyz Republic.”
During the introductory classes, online school participants discussed issues of preventing corruption, the role of civil society institutions in preventing corruption, as well as the rule of law, access to information and media literacy.
After the introductory training sessions, sessions on budget transparency began. During the training, participants became familiar with the budget system of the Kyrgyz Republic, the principles of the budget system, reviewed the types of budgets and reviewed the expenditure obligations of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Kyrgyz Republic and local governments.

The first part of the online school is taught by Nurida Baizakova, an expert on program budgeting, budget transparency and public procurement.
The project is being implemented with the financial support of the Democracy Commission of the US Embassy.
