The United Nations Kosovo Team (UNKT)
The United Nations Kosovo Team (UNKT) is comprised of UN entities, agencies, funds and affiliates with staff from Kosovo and abroad, all deeply committed to Agenda 2030 with their own unique expertise.
As international civil servants, their work ensures that no one, either locally or internationally, is left behind in the pursuit of sustainable development. Their team believes this is achieved through a rights-based approach that eliminates poverty, supports health and education, and sustainably grows a thriving economy while protecting our planet.
The UNKT is an umbrella for these interventions. Their chair, the United Nations Development Coordinator (UNDC), facilitates internal dialogue and coordinates their team to ensure their collaborative effort has an efficient and effective impact in Kosovo.
Kosovo Chamber of Commerce (KCC)
Kosovo Chamber of Commerce (KCC) is a professional organization founded in 1962 by the Assembly of Kosovo. KCC is an independent professional organization, apolitical and non-profitable. It is the only business institution established by law and the KCC activities take place on the basis of this law: (Law on Kosovo Chamber of Commerce 2004/7 adopted by the Assembly of Kosovo). KCC serves the Kosovo economy, and is a constructive partner of the Kosovo state institutions, a partner in social dialogue and promoter of economic development and good macroeconomic policies.
The Kosovo Chamber of Commerce analyzes the economic situation in Kosovo and actively proposes new and advanced forms of local business and stimulates the internationalization of Kosovo entrepreneurship. Kosovo Chamber of Commerce contributes to the development of enterprises and with its professionalism and determination assists the Kosovo business and society of Kosovo to internalize European values.
CiviKos Platform is a voluntary union of civil society organizations, committed to the development of a favorable environment for cooperation between Civil Society and Public Authorities.
It was established in the spring of 2007, when local institutions in Kosovo had already assumed most of their competencies and civil society had become an important stakeholder in building democracy in Kosovo. A large number of civil society organizations together with the Office of the Prime Minister started this process in order to open the institutional path of cooperation between the two sectors.
This joint project of establishing a cooperation basis between different stakeholders comes as a result of the Memorandum of Understanding between the United Nations Office in Kosovo and the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce to involve the private sector in sustainable development efforts, which is in line with the Decade of Action Agenda 2030 ratified by the Parliament of Kosovo.
