What We Do
On the ground in Kosovo since 1999, the United Nations Development Programme has earned a reputation as an independent and experienced partner in the collective effort to build and strengthen Kosovo institutions and achieve sustainable development.
A world of development experience
This is a critical time for the world. At UNDP, we see this period as a huge opportunity to advance the global sustainable development agenda. Last year, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to continue the work of the Millennium Development Goals. UNDP is working to strengthen new frameworks for development, disaster risk reduction and climate change. We support countries' efforts to achieve the new Sustainable Development Goals, or Global Goals, which will guide global development priorities for the next 15 years.
