Towards clean energy, one step at a time
The sun provides more than enough energy to meet the entire world’s energy demand. In fact, solar and wind power could supply global energy demand 100-times over! While so far, the use of solar power has been rather limited in Kosovo, we are slowly seeing positive progress in harnessing this great potential. The urgency to move towards low-carbon development – and ultimately, carbon neutrality – coupled with the dramatically decreasing cost of technology is making solar power an attractive source of energy, in fact becoming the least cost solution in many cases.
What we do

Since 2005, over 17,000 young women and men have benefitted from active labor market measures through on-the-job training, wage subsidy, as well as grants and advisory services to foster self-employment opportunities.
The solar panels installed at our premises will produce around 24% of our total electricity demand, saving approximately 36 tons of CO2 emissions per year and reducing UNDP Kosovo CO’s carbon footprint.
UNDP contributed to security and safety of all its residents by destroying more than 10,000 illegal weapons and about 60,000 pieces of ammunitions of various calibers.
Throughout 20 years of Public Pulse, we interviewed over 63,798 people on their perceptions on economic, social and political situation in Kosovo and published 29 Kosovo Early Warning Reports, 21 Public Pulse Briefs, and 9 Public Pulse Analyses, in English, Albanian and Serbian.
