From 24 to 25 April, the EU-funded Border Management Programme in Central Asia (BOMCA 10) organised a seminar on effective communications for the local authorities in border areas of Kyrgyzstan. 

This programme activity is aimed at developing skills for effective interaction with the population of border regions by introducing practical means of personal and professional communication.

As a result, participants received practical skills in building effective communication applicable in their work, which will contribute to the provision of clear and understandable information to the population of border regions.

The Pilot Study on Circular Migration in the Fergana Valley of the Kyrgyz Republic was presented during the seminar. This study was conducted in 2023 and 2024 within the framework of the BOMCA 10 Programme and contains information about the profile of the migrants who come to the country and provides valuable data for building successful communication with its target audience.  

This activity was organised in the framework of the Programme’s Component 4, “Improvement of Cross-Border Cooperation”, and is aimed at improving the living conditions in border areas through local economic development, with a focus on human rights, gender equality and vulnerable groups.
