In 2017, CADCA first introduced the community coalition strategy to select core leaders from Karaganda and Ust-Kamenogorsk, with support from INL Nur-Sultan, which participated in CADCA’s Training of Leaders that was held in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. The successful implementation of the coalition model in the context of Kazakhstan was then showcased during a roundtable on the Best Practices in Community-Based Prevention in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan in April 2019, which was organized by INL Nur-Sultan and the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Republic of Kazakhstan and attended by CADCA. One of the outcomes of the roundtable was to expand the coalition model into other areas of Kazakhstan, specifically into Nur-Sultan, Almaty, and Pavlodar. In January 2020, the first CADCA training (Training of Leaders) conducted in Kazakhstan was held in Karaganda in collaboration with INL Nus-Sultan and the MIA of the Republic of Kazakhstan, and included the core leaders from Karaganda, Ust-Kamenogorsk, Nur-Sultan, Almaty, and Pavlodar. CADCA partnered up with local NGOs on coalition-building efforts in each of the communities (Free People Community Development Foundation in Almaty and in Nur-Sultan, Public Foundation You Are Not Alone in Pavlodar, Public Association Unit in Karaganda and Public Association Kuat in Ust-Kamenogorsk). CADCA launched the Training of Leaders initiative in Kazakhstan in 2019.
