L’Uzbekistan pone fine alla condizione di apolidia di 50.000 persone

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 marzo 2020

Si stima che saranno 50.000 le persone apolidi in Uzbekistan che acquisiranno la cittadinanza in seguito all’approvazione di una nuova legge nazionale.Una disposizione contenuta nella legge sulla cittadinanza, firmata venerdì dal Presidente dell’Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev e che entrerà in vigore dal 1º aprile, concederà la cittadinanza a tutti gli apolidi registrati ai quali era stato rilasciato un permesso di soggiorno permanente in Uzbekistan prima del 1º gennaio 1995.L’UNHCR, l’Agenzia delle Nazioni Unite per i Rifugiati, accoglie con favore la nuova legge, durante la cui stesura aveva sottoposto una serie di raccomandazioni alle autorità nazionali.Le autorità stimano che sarà circa la metà della popolazione apolide dell’Uzbekistan, vale a dire 49.228 persone, a godere delle disposizioni della nuova normativa, vedendosi riconosciuto lo status di cittadini. Anche i figli dei beneficiari della normativa avranno il diritto di acquisire la cittadinanza secondo le medesime procedure.La nuova legge, inoltre, prevede importanti disposizioni volte a prevenire l’apolidia e introduce, per la prima volta, procedure semplificate di acquisizione della cittadinanza per naturalizzazione. Di tali procedure, che entreranno in vigore a settembre di quest’anno, potranno beneficiare anche gli apolidi registrati in possesso di permesso di soggiorno permanente rilasciato a partire dal 1º gennaio 1995.“Negli ultimi anni, l’Uzbekistan ha compiuto progressi significativi nella risoluzione e prevenzione dell’apolidia e tali sviluppi rappresentano un considerevole balzo in avanti negli sforzi volti a porre fine ai casi noti di apolidia. Per decine di migliaia di persone ora vi è l’opportunità di essere a tutti gli effetti parte di una comunità”, ha dichiarato Yasuko Oda, Rappresentante dell’UNHCR per l’Asia Centrale.Negli ultimi tre anni l’Uzbekistan ha concesso la cittadinanza a circa 10.000 apolidi, apportato modifiche alle prassi di registrazione delle nascite per garantire la registrazione universale di tutti i neonati, compresi i figli di genitori privi di documenti di identità, e lanciato una campagna su scala nazionale per individuare e registrare tutte le nascite non documentate. Attualmente, in Uzbekistan, gli apolidi registrati sono 97.346. I casi di apolidia diffusi nel Paese e in tutta la regione circostante sono in larga parte il risultato della dissoluzione dell’Unione Sovietica avvenuta nel 1991 e della formazione di nuovi Stati, il quale ha comportato che centinaia di migliaia di persone restassero apolidi in tutta l’Asia Centrale.Sebbene molti abbiano potuto mantenere o acquisire la cittadinanza degli Stati successori, altri si sono ritrovati bloccati all’interno delle frontiere di recente costituzione, in possesso di passaporti non più validi o privi delle prove necessarie per dimostrare il proprio luogo di nascita o di residenza precedente.

World Bank Launches New Partnership Strategy with Uzbekistan

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 7 dicembre 2011

Wahington, The World Bank Group’s Board of Directors today approved a new Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for Uzbekistan, providing the framework for World Bank Group assistance to Uzbekistan between 2012 and 2015.
The new Strategy proposes a program linked to Uzbekistan’s development vision of reaching high middle-income status by mid-century. It was developed based on a broad dialogue with the Government of Uzbekistan and consultations with all development partners, including civil society organizations, academia, business communities, professional associations, and multilateral and bilateral donors.Through implementation of the CPS, the World Bank intends to help enhance the key elements of the Government’s medium-term growth and development strategy: promoting efficiency, enhancing competitiveness, accelerating diversification, and ensuring social inclusion. A new financing envelope of US$1.3 billion – consisting of concessional International Development Association (IDA) credits and International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) loans – reflects the country’s development needs, its income level, economic prospects, economic management, poverty level, and performance of Bank-sponsored programs. It will support projects in the areas of water supply and sanitation, irrigation, energy, transport, and private sectors over the next four years. The Bank will also extend the on-going support for basic services in health and educationProposed analytical and advisory services aim to help Uzbekistan prepare a comprehensive sector-wide understanding of future development directions. Horticulture and energy sector strategy development is an example of such engagement. In addition, the CPS envisages a high-level joint strategy development exercise – “Uzbekistan Vision 2030”. This aims to help Uzbekistan define roadmaps to achieve its development goals in collaboration with Uzbek research institutes. “The new CPS builds upon the positive experience of the previous Country Assistance Strategy for 2008-2011,” says Takuya Kamata, World Bank Country Manager for Uzbekistan. “Uzbekistan has a wide range of opportunities. It has a well educated, young population, which is a great asset. Uzbekistan has great potential in horticulture as well. Key elements of required economic reforms are, for example, to improve energy intensity and the investment climate. And, transparency and accountability in governance are critical for inclusive growth.”
About the World Bank in Uzbekistan Uzbekistan joined the World Bank in 1992. The World Bank currently has 10 active projects whose outstanding total commitment is about US$630 million.

Baku, Azerbaijan on 12–15 September 2011 the sixty-first session of the WHO Regional Committee for Europe, WHO’s governing body for the Region. Health ministers and high-level policy-makers from the 53 Member States in the Region, from Iceland and Ireland to Israel and Uzbekistan, will be joined by representatives of partner organizations and civil society. This is a unique opportunity to meet the European health community as it makes decisions, and to report from a country that very few journalists cover. This year, an exceptionally strong raft of policies is on the table, dominated by WHO/Europe’s new European policy for health and well-being, Health 2020, which stresses equity, public health and an all-of-government approach.
A press conference about these policies will take place on Friday, 9 September in Baku. WHO/Europe has developed strategies and action plans to prevent and tackle the main killer diseases in the Region, in consultation with experts and policy-makers and using the latest research. They address noncommunicable diseases (such as cancer and heart disease), alcohol, multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, antibiotic resistance and HIV/AIDS.
