  • Integrated Territorial Development 2 (InTerDev 2)

    INTERDEV2 addresses some of the paramount challenges citizens of not only the partner municipalities, but of Kosovo in general, face: high rate and long spells of unemployment, lack of decent income generation, poor public services, as well as socioeconomic exclusion of women, youth, and other vulnerable groups.

  • Regional Programme on Local Democracy in the Western Balkans (ReLOaD)

    ReLOaD will improve cooperation between local governments and CSOs, while strengthening capacities of all relevant stakeholders to engage more productively in such partnerships.

Environment, Climate and Disaster Resilience

  • SPECIES- Sustainable Environmental Civil Society Sector

  • Healthier Kosovo

    Kosovo institutions achieve more effective governance in environment and health through inclusive, evidence-based planning, implementation and monitoring of air pollution impacts on health. More people adopt behaviors that are healthy and that increase resilience to potential threats from environmental pollution.

  • Kosovo Disaster Risk Reduction Initiative: COMPLETED

    Kosovo’s economy, population, and environment are moderately exposed and highly vulnerable to natural hazards. Climate change is expected to amplify exposure to meteorological hazards. The objective of this project (2013-2015) is to reduce disaster and climate risks in Kosovo and thus contribute to the attainment of country development strategies and the Millennium Development Goals.
