Steering Committee on UN Framework for Sustainable Development meets

The joint commitment of the government of Kosovo and UNKT for sustainable development, was at the center of the second meeting of the Steering Committee of the United Nations Cooperation Framework for Sustainable Development (UNSDCF), for the period 2021-2025.

Kosovo’s vision for 2030 as a primary objective, sets sustainable economic development, high quality of life, and effective institutions, said Prime Minister Kurti at the opening of the meeting.

An essential element of this vision is membership in Euro-Atlantic organizations, so achieving the vision of sustainable development advances Kosovo’s process for membership in the European Union family, he added.

Kurti stressed that Kosovo through this vision aims to keep pace with technological developments and opportunities offered by digitalization, to contribute as a regional actor and beyond to the green agenda, to provide inclusion for all its citizens and consider migration policies, and in particular to advance relations with the diaspora, as an integral part of development.

In addition to thanking the support of UN agencies in the process of drafting the National Development Strategy, the meeting stressed the importance of continuing with the same spirit of cooperation, to achieve a common vision for the well-being of all citizens of Kosovo, informs a press release issued by the Office of the Prime Minister.
