6 Develop a global partnership for development

Where we are?

MDG 8 Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan actively cooperates with international organisations, private sector and civil society for global partnership and ensuring development synergy

Partnerships at the national and international levels are important factors for achieving development goals and objectives. Kazakhstan continues developing cooperation and partnerships at the international level (including trade, donor and financial institutions), and with private sector and civil society within the country. Kazakhstan is an active player in the international arena as well as in different regional and international organisations. International (external) partnerships where Kazakhstan is involved fully support and promote its development objectives. At this stage the most active relationships are in the areas of trade, investments, finance, IT and communications, as well as regional and international cooperation. Domestic partnerships are different in scope and progress. The partnership with the private sector is gaining momentum whereas the dialogue with civil society has a slower progress. In the future, the domestic partnerships should focus on addressing the most essential development issues: inequality and marginalisation, local level development, employment of youths and women. In partnerships with the civil society the priority should be assigned to enhancing the existing (and creation of new) mechanisms of dialogue and collaboration. One of the promising streams is to involve NGOs into social service delivery.
