OUR WORK - Sustainable Development

UNDP's Sustainable Development Programme stimulates lasting economic improvement of livelihoods of Kosovars that does not jeopardise social inclusion or environmental stability in the long run. To achieve it, economic, social, and environmental aspects all need to be addressed and kept in balance. Social inclusion, productive employment, and sustainable development are not straightforward by-products of economic growth policies. With Kosovo institutions on the central and local level, the private sector, and the civil society, we create opportunities for Kosovar women and men who tend to be excluded from socioeconomic life to develop marketable skills, find decent employment and create additional income for their families. We work directly with the private sector to stimulate growth and expansion of businesses and work with farmers to increase and enhance productivity taking into account value added elements.
