United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework 2021-2025
This United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework 2021–2025 (Cooperation Framework) articulates the United Nations development system’s cooperation with Kosovo institutions and partners over the next five years.

Results Report of 2021
The second year in a row overshadowed by COVID-19, 2021 spelled a period of resilience in the face of unprecedented challenges and set Kosovo on a remarkable path to recovery that defied predictions. For the UN, 2021 also marked the first year of implementation of our Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework 2021-2025, an important milestone to testify to the close relationship between the United Nations and the government and people of Kosovo. Throughout 2021, we delivered tangible results across five priority areas, bringing agencies together to ensure a more effective, integrated response with partners to fight the pandemic and forge pathways towards resilient recovery.

Maximising Synergies Between the 2030 Agenda and Kosovo’s European Agenda
The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the European Union (EU) Reform Agenda are both aimed at supporting development reforms and long-term prosperity, presenting important areas of complementarity and synergy. As a result, there is an opportunity to capitalise on the areas of complementarity and synergy that underlie these mutual efforts in Kosovo. The issue of sustainable development features heavily in EU strategic frameworks and policies: the 2030 Agenda is integrated systematically into the EU’s foreign policy, and sustainable development is a prevailing objective of the EU in Kosovo. Given this shared commitment to the SDGs, there is potential to collaborate more closely in Kosovo and expand on existing initiatives with the aim to facilitate Kosovo’s progress towards SDG achievement and further its development and progress on its European path. This report illustrates how Kosovo’s development trajectory is directly intertwined with progress towards its EU aspirations. A comparison between the chapters of the EU acquis and the SDGs reveals over 60 per cent alignment. The framework for EU enlargement could help contribute to improved outcomes with respect to the SDGs and Kosovo development objectives. At the same time, if cross-sectoral intersections between the SGDs and the EU Reform Agenda are developed, Kosovo development outcomes would be further supported.

Common Kosovo Analysis 2022
The United Nations Common Kosovo Analysis (CKA) is the UN Kosovo Team’s independent, impartial and collective assessment and analysis of the Kosovo context, which has shaped the development of its Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework 2021-2025. It examines progress, gaps, opportunities and bottlenecks vis-à-vis Kosovo’s commitment to achieving the 2030 Agenda. A living document, the CKA in current and future iterations will inform UNKT work on a continuous basis, making the UN responsive to emerging needs and changing conditions. The CKA is the result of an extensive multi-stakeholder process and combines data currently available separately throughout the system, useful to inform both internal and external audiences. Some data sources are outlined in the annexes. This is the second iteration of the analysis, to be used for the year 2022.
