The government priorities have for last years shifted to more advanced development aspects such as the economic growth, advanced quality of education and investment in human capital. UNKT comes together to work in step with the government’s requests, with each of its member providing assistance to Kosovo in its respective areas of specialization – be it health, children’s rights, Gender equality, education, environment, good governance or agricultural and economic development.
The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945 after the Second World War by 51 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights.
Kosovo is largely mountainous, with the North Albanian Alps in the west, the Shar Mountains in the south, and the Kopaonik range in the west. Surrounded by the mountains are the fertile valleys of Kosovo field and Dukagjini field; the land is drained by the Drin, Ibër, and Morava rivers.
