Sustainable development

Valuing human capital

UNDP's Sustainable Development portfolio stimulates lasting economic improvement of livelihoods of Kosovans that does not jeopardize social inclusion or environmental stability in the long run. To achieve this, economic, social, and environmental aspects of development all must addressed and kept in balance.

By cooperating with Kosovo institutions on both central and local levels, 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 and increase employability, find decent employment or start own businesses, and create additional income for their families. We cooperate directly with the private sector to stimulate business growth and employment, and work with farmers and rural entrepreneurs to increase production and enhance productivity, also focusing on value added elements. At the same time, we support public institutions for better policy-making and delivery of inclusive and responsive public services, as well as a stronger dialogue with the civil society.
