Kosovo Human Development Report 2002

Building Bridges to a Better Future - This first Kosovo Human Development Report joins this global stable of targeted Human Development Reports and applies the human development conceptual framework to the unique situation of Kosovo for the first time. Only three months into the life of Kosovo's Provisional Institutions of Self-Government (PISG), the timing is fortuitous; this Report will hopefully assist these new decision-makers in charting a development strategy for Kosovo that will translate into real, sustainable progress, in human development terms.  As the first Human Development Report for Kosovo, we have inevitably had to confront serious gaps in data, a reality with which the PISG is similarly struggling. The gaps however, are now more obvious than ever and UNDP will work with its partners to close them over the coming months and years. We are confident the debate that will follow this first Report will also assist us in identifying a more thematic approach in future Human Development Reports for Kosovo.  The process used to prepare this 2002 Kosovo Human Development Report mirrors ongoing international efforts to accelerate the transfer of the responsibilities of governance back to local leadership.
