FAO Investment Centre brings innovation to local communities
In January 2008, an Agricultural Investment and Services Project (AISP) was approved for Kyrgyzstan by the World Bank. FAO's Investment Centre supported the project development and technical implementation, with the aim of improving infrastructure for the country's farmers and herders. Small-scale Kyrgyz farmers can now increase yields by up to 50 percent.
