UNDP launches the BOOST x Kosovo Programme for a sustainable private sector in Kosovo
United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Kosovo, in partnership with the Embassy of Japan in Kosovo, launched today BOOST x Kosovo, an acceleration programme to help businesses tackle development challenges and support Kosovo’s private sector to build resilience by embracing sustainable green practices.
In the presence of Maria Suokko, UNDP Resident Representative, H. E. Keisuke Yamanaka, Chargé d’Affaires a.i. of Japan in Kosovo, Uranik Begu, ICK Executive Director, representatives of Ministry of Regional Development, Kamenicë/a and Pristina municipalities, EBRD, Business Associations and other guests, the Kosovo BOOST Team presented its curriculum and activities.
BOOST x Kosovo was made possible through the Climate Promise: Growth Through Green and Just Recovery from COVID-19 project, generously funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Japan. It seeks to provide opportunities and address the challenges of greener growth in the private sector. The challenge is open for all small and medium enterprises with innovative solutions that promote sustainable, efficient, and circular business practices. Women entrepreneurs are strongly encouraged to apply and integrate innovation and technology into their businesses. The aim is to ultimately create new jobs and revitalize Kosovo’s economy, in response to the consequences of the pandemic. Winning teams will take part in a 3-month acceleration programme, workshops, and individual mentoring sessions on leadership, business, and green transformation, designed to ensure a smooth roll-out of the solutions they have developed.
