Representatives of UNESCO, UNDP, the UN Department of Public Information, the Human Rights Commission under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the National Academic Library and top officials from the Almaty Akimat participated.

The UN will assist the Akimat to create a digital library on human rights issues in both Kazakh and Russian, based on legal documents of Municipality (Akimat). The Almaty digital library is the second phase of a national project.

The first digital library collection was created using legal documents of the Human Rights Commission under the President of Kazakhstan. It can be accessed via the National Academic Library in Astana.

As the largest city in Kazakhstan, Almaty has the best access to legal information via the internet. The human rights digital library will be a key component of e-government in the Almaty region, improve public access to rights information, help citizens to more actively participate in public affairs and improve the general legal education of the population.
