Human Development

  • Kosovo Human Development Report 2015Kosovo Human Development Report 2015Human Development is about creating an environment where people are able to have a dignified life and having a decent job is one of the fundamental needs for a healthy socio-economic environment. In the context of Kosovo, employment means nutritious food on the table, a better house to live in, better health, access to education and greater personal freedom. Despite the continuing positive rates of economic growth each year, Kosovo’s economy faces challenges in creating employment opportunities for its citizens. The main employment indicators, measured by the Labour Force Survey (LFS) remain unpromising. The unemployment rate continues to be above 30%, having a higher impact on young women and men (61%). The same data show that long-term unemployment and inactivity rates remain very high. However, to better understand the causes of these negative indicators in the labour market, UNDP is seeking to analyse further the long-term unemployment, the large group of Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEETs), the high inactivity rate and youth unemployment based on the datasets available.
