For Kosovo to reach its full potential, UNDP Kosovo is committed to supporting transitioning to a model of growth that is inclusive and within planetary boundaries in terms of production and consumption. Through green transition, new jobs can be created, and Kosovo will be able to move to a net zero carbon development path.
UNDP supports Kosovo in reducing poverty and inequalities, creating sustainable employment, ensuring protection and sustainable use of natural resources, and building resilience to climate risks.
We ensure sustainability of development gains by supporting Kosovo institutions through expertise and skills development, engaging with the non-governmental stakeholders, and community at large.
Economic Growth, Social Protection and Employment
Sustainable and decent employment will be promoted as a way of alleviating poverty, inequalities, and exclusion. Our work focuses on supporting job creation, improving the quality of available employment, with a focus on future of jobs, as well as supporting social protection that is designed and implemented from a social inclusion perspective.
Placing an emphasis on women, young, those in vulnerable situations, and repatriated persons, since 2005, in close partnership with Kosovo institutions, UNDP Kosovo has successfully implemented the “Active Labor Market Project” (ALMP). Through this project, we have assisted over 17,000 Kosovo job seekers through on-the-job training, wage subsidies, self-employment, and internship opportunities.
UNDP is also supporting development of inclusive social protection policies, while actively providing targeted financial assistance schemes for those hit the hardest by the COVID crisis.
