The measures to be implemented under this FC-Programme concern the construction or rehabilitation as well as furnishing and equipment of minor communal infrastructure, e.g. schools, health facilities, homes for the aged and homes for the handicapped, children's homes, etc.
The programme region essentially includes the eastern and western parts of the Oblast Khatlon. The programme's overriding goal is to contribute towards the strengthening of the poor population's human resources by improving their development opportunities and capacities for self-help.
The programme goal is to improve access to functional and sustainable social infrastructure for poor population groups. At the same time it is intended that the community driven approach will enhance the participation of such poor population groups in political processes through the inclusion of their representatives in all phases of the programme and in all stages of individual programme measures.
The programme also aims at improving the building quality through design and material improvements and by applying EE efficiency measures like insulation of floors and roofs, improved window qualities and general improvement of construction details. Thermal comfort of the buildings is measured and evaluated throughout the first years of use. In Phase II pilot projects that are mainly relying on alternative energy sources and are independent from public networks as much as possible have been built.
