Kosovo Local Government Institute (KLGI) in support of the Ministry of Local Government Administration (MLGA) organized a workshop to discuss the "Plan for the implementation of the Strategy for Local Economic Development".

The purpose of the workshop was to discuss the review of the action plan and the monitoring of the Local Economic Development Strategy 2022-2023. This document addresses the aspects of local economic development oriented towards partnership with all stakeholders in order to increase employment, reduce poverty and increase the quality of life.

Economic development can only be achieved when municipalities show good governance and provide necessary services to citizens through the improvement and advancement of local self-government. First of all, Municipalities should make continuous efforts not to remain highly dependent on revenues from the central level, but to increase the collection of own source revenues.

This activity was realized in the framework of the program ‘Dialogue for European Municipalities (DEM)’, supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Kosovo.
