Turkmen legislators advance transparency and effective lawmaking

During February 20 and 23, the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Governance Support Program held a four-day seminar in partnership with the Mejlis (Parliament) of Turkmenistan, introducing the members of Parliament (MPs) to international best practices in lawmaking.

A well-functioning legislative system is crucial for ensuring good governance, upholding the rights and interests of citizens, and fostering socio-economic development.  USAID partners with the Mejlis of Turkmenistan in strengthening the national legislative system to help effectively implement the country’s socio-economic and good governance programs.  In the past, USAID organized seminars and training sessions for Turkmen MPs on global best practices in parliamentary processes and arranged a study tour for Turkmen MPs to explore first-hand legislative systems in the United States.

USAID’s seminar on global law-making methods, engaged participants in interactive sessions, case studies, and hands-on exercises for comprehensive capacity building.  Through such initiatives, USAID supports strengthening the transparency, accountability, and effectiveness of Turkmenistan’s legislative system and contributes to social and economic development in the country.


The USAID-funded Governance Support Program, implemented by Q2 Impact in partnership with the Government of Turkmenistan, aims to strengthen accountability, effectiveness, and transparency of governance in the country.
