Regional Development Indicators are tools that allow policymakers to measure the socio-economic and environmental status, land use, migration, infrastructures, mobility, policies, waste disposal systems and access to services by citizens. They allow for the diagnosis of problems and pressures, and thus the identification of areas that would profit from being addressed through good governance and science-based responses. They also allow regional and local authorities to monitor the success and impact of sustainability interventions.
This project aims to build a National Regional Development Index for Kosovo, as well as to analyse and evaluate Kosovo’s all 7 regions in this context. This process will be followed by intervention suggestions as well as preparing the guidelines and Action Plans for implementing the related recomandations. All this process will take 15 months, while academics and professionals from ETH Zurich, TU Wien and Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University will be involved.
7 regions of Kosovo (Prishtina, Mitrovica, Ferizaj, Gjilan, Gjakova, Peja and Prizren) will be treated in the context of 30 indicatos, devided in 5 groups, namely “Economic Structure and Performance”, “Population and Migration”, “Social well-being and equity”, “Environment and Sustainability” as well as “Infrastructure and Mobility”.
