Integrated Territorial Development 2 (InTerDev 2)

Project Summary

The Integrated Territorial Development 2 project builds on the successes of the ADC-UNDP “Local-level Response for Employment Generation and Integrated Territorial Development (InTerDev)” project that has been implemented in southern Kosovo’s municipalities of Dragash/Dragaš and Shtërpcë/Štrpce since 2014. This project has proven to address some of the paramount challenges citizens of not only the partner areas, but of Kosovo in general, face: high rate and long spells of unemployment, lack of decent income generation, poor public services, as well as socioeconomic exclusion of women, youth, and other vulnerable groups. The InTerDev 2 will continue to utilize tested methodologies and will expand its services to a new municipality of Viti/Vitina in the south-east of Kosovo.

What Do We Want to Achieve

Working closely with a variety of public, private sector, and non-governmental sector partners on the local level (such as the Local Action Groups, local Employment Offices, Vocational Training Centres, the Local Development Fund, and the private sector companies in the area), the InTerDev 2 will continue to serve citizens who are at risk of socioeconomic exclusion: local smallholder farmers, micro business initiatives, long-term unemployed and low-skilled or unskilled residents, women, youth, non-majority communities, as well as people with disabilities.

As such, the project in its three years will serve over 700 additional residents (50% women, and 40% non-majority communities) and will reach over 3,800 indirect beneficiaries.

Goals and Expected Results

Overall Objective: Inclusive and sustainable income generation and job creation for women and men is improved in the municipalities of Dragash/Dragaš, Shtërpcë/Štrpce, and Viti/Vitina.

Project Purpose: Municipal public service provision in rural development is enhanced and economic activity of local micro and small businesses is expanded in a gender equitable, socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable manner.

It is expected that, as a result of this intervention:

i) Municipal officials have enhanced capacities in provision of services in rural development

ii) Local micro and small enterprises and farmers have been supported to upgrade their businesses

iii) Bottom-up approaches and local-level concertation for employment generation in the form of Territorial Employment Pacts operate at the municipal level.
