KLGI Institute and Ministry of Regional Development organized a workshop to discuss the objectives of the regional development strategy

Kosovo Local Government Institute (KLGI) in cooperation with the Ministry of Regional Development (MRD) organized the next workshop with the working group for the drafting of the Regional Development Strategy 2020-2030. This discussion is in the framework of the support provided by KLGI Institute for the institutions in drafting policies / legislation in the field of local governance.

Throughout the meeting, were discussed the strategic objectives to be set out in this strategic document. This strategy defines the long-term goals and priorities for regional development, while also facilitating policy coordination, which contribute to the balanced development of the regions. First of all, it serves as a guide to local economic development by taking initiatives and implementing joint development projects.

However, regional socio-economic analysis and identification of priorities will help a sustainable regional development. In this context, regional development has to do with the integration of various policies and programs, providing new synergies, improving coordination and involving local communities in formulating and implementing concrete policies.

This strategy will be completed after a long study and joint efforts of all stakeholders, meeting its objectives in the function of sustainable economic development in the region.

KLGI Institute, through its programs, will continue supporting the institutions in drafting policies and legislation that affect the field of local government in the Republic of Kosovo.

This activity was carried out under the project "Support for Stronger and Sustainable Municipalitites" funded by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Pristina.
