Kosovo Human Development Report 2007

Energy for Development - This report presents the first study undertaken on the impacts of energy on human development in Kosovo. The key objective of the report is to contribute inputs to future policy and management decision-making in the energy sector that will support economically, socially and environmentally sustainable energy development in Kosovo. To this end, the preparation for the report sought to gain a better understanding of the relationship between energy supply and the consumption of energy services in the household sector, which in Kosovo is the main consumer of electricity, firewood and district heating services. The preparation of the Kosovo Human Development Report 2007 involved three main components. First, a series of 15 policy papers on local energy-related issues were commissioned from local consultants. The second and arguably the most important component of the research was an independent, commissioned public opinion survey that was carried out in late October 2007. The survey provided comprehensive responses from over 1,300 individuals across Kosovo on individual and household energy consumption, behaviour, beliefs and attitudes. The third and final component of the preparation process was the engagement of an independent international consultant to review and analyse the policy papers, survey data and official documents, and to draft the final report.
