To date, UNDP Kosovo has published eight national Human Development Reports. As human development practitioners consider the crowdsourcing method as a unique opportunity for citizens to collaborate to make their country a better place to live, UNDP Kosovo adopted the ‘crowdsourcing’ method to determine the topics of its upcoming HDRs. Currently, UNDP Kosovo is working on the ninth report that will discuss unemployment, one of the most voted topics. The KHDR on employment and human development will thoroughly analyze labor market and employment opportunities from a holistic and inclusive perspective. Having done this, it will identify the main obstacles to providing Kosovans with decent jobs in order to increase the quality of their lives.
