UNDP is the UN’s global network to help people meet their development needs and build a better life. We are on the ground in 166 countries, working as a trusted partner with Governments, civil society and the private sector to help them build their own solutions to global and national development challenges.
In Kosovo, the United Nations Development Programme has earned a strong reputation as an independent and experienced partner in the effort to rebuild and engage in development. After the initial period of post conflict reconstruction UNDP continued its work in helping to establish, develop, and strengthen Kosovo institutions, promote economic growth, enhance people’s everyday security and improve environmental sustainability. All programmes emphasized the role of partnership and the use of local expertise where possible to provide solutions that suit Kosovo.
The UNDP Kosovo Programme Action Plan 2011- 2015 aims to assist Kosovo with its development agenda, focusing on social inclusion and human development for all. UNDP will contribute to Kosovo’s priorities and development of capacities of various partners through three programme components: i) Inclusive growth and development, ii) Democratic governance, and iii) Environmental sustainability.
UNDP offers comparative advantages in these areas, drawing on its global knowledge base, best practices, lessons learnt, and past cooperation. Efforts will continue to reinforce mainstreaming gender equality and women empowerment across the programme and greater attention will be devoted to embedding a more coherent strategy for civil society engagement and research-based programming across all development interventions.
