Country or Region:
Kosovo*
Description:

The Report examines traditional socio-economic indicators, from poverty and unemployment to health and education, from the perspective of social inclusion. It explores how discrimination – deliberate or otherwise – affects Kosovo’s socio-economic balance, its political process and its EU-orientated policy goals. It also identifies social groups feeling the bite of exclusion more deeply than others. These groups risk becoming Kosovo’s invisible population unless they are moved quickly up the policy prioritization ladder and made the primary focus of Kosovo’s development agenda: the long-term unemployed, disadvantaged children and youth, rural women, Kosovo-Roma, Askhali and Egyptian (RAE) communities, people with special needs. Finally, it offers some recommendations on how the move towards a more inclusive society might be managed, as a fundamental precursor to other economic and political progress.

* In line with UNSCR 1244 (1999)

Description:

After a close look at what we mean when we say “civil society” and what we mean when we say “development,” the report goes on to explore the history of civil society in Kosovo, its legal context, and ways it can influence public policy. Next, it looks at civil society through the eyes of the government and the general public, before discussing ways that CSOs can effectively work together with the government, with each other, and with the media, and ways they can influence and benefit from the European integration process. The final two chapters suggest improvements that CSOs should strive for and explore the potential of Community Driven Human Development in Kosovo.

Description:

This report presents the first study undertaken on the impacts of energy on human development in Kosovo. The key objective of the report is to contribute inputs to future policy and management decision-making in the energy sector that will support economically, socially and environmentally sustainable energy development in Kosovo. To this end, the preparation for the report sought to gain a better understanding of the relationship between energy supply and the consumption of energy services in the household sector, which in Kosovo is the main consumer of electricity, firewood and district heating services.

Description:

The new report provides an excellent opportunity to deepen our understanding of human development and how it applies to Kosovo. Whilst the first report established a base-line, the second report explored in greater detail the differences in development in Kosovan population. The KHDR 2006 report explores the human development concerns of one of the most critical segments of Kosovo society, the youth, which represent both the potential wealth of the Kosovo society for accelerated development and, at the same time, a major potential risk if it is not approached adequately. This report also assess whether there have been improvements in human development since 2002 and identify different development challenges that have emerged since first KHDR report.
