Human 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.more

Kosovo Human Development Reports
Labour migration and economic interaction with the Kosovan Diaspora abroad have a profound impact on the economic opportunities and livelihoods of many individuals in Kosovo. This is not just limited to the household level. Economic interactions with the Kosovan Diaspora are so pervasive that they strongly influence Kosovo’s macroeconomic development and, hence, all Kosovans.
Private Sector and Employment addresses one of Kosovo’s deepest post-conﬂict challenges – the capacity of the economy to provide jobs and growth. The desire for decent work is one of the most basic of all human needs. To the average Kosovan family, decent work means more nutritious food on the table, a better house to live in, better health and more freedoms.
It examines exclusion as it affects Kosovans reaching for education and a basic standard of health. Finally, it looks at how gaps in these sectors are influencing public trust and eroding participation in Kosovo’s hard-won democratic process.
