What We Do

Since 1999, the United Nations Development Programme has earned a strong reputation as an independent and experienced partner in the effort to rebuild Kosovo. After the initial period of post-conflict reconstruction, it has helped establish and develop local institutions. Kosovo is now on a new phase of development.

Our Goals

UNDP is ideally placed to help the Kosovan people and institutions in overcoming the future challenges as well. We will contribute to Kosovo's priorities and development of capacities of various partners through the following programme components: inclusive growth and development, democratic governance, and environmental sustainability. Efforts will continue to reinforce mainstreaming gender equality and women empowerment across the programme.
