INDEP publishes the analysis “Principles of Green Recovery for Kosovo – Lessons from Pre-Packages and the Road to Sustainable Recovery”.

The Institute for Development Policy (INDEP), in the framework of the project “Recovery for Sustainability” has published the analysis entitled “Principles of green recovery for Kosovo – lessons from previous packages and the path to sustainable recovery.” The paper addresses the past stimulus packages of the Government of Kosovo, the Economic Revival Package, the mistakes made so far in recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic and the steps that need to be taken in the future.

The paper has treated and studied the cases of European countries such as Germany, Norway and Luxembourg, in order to present concrete recommendations and examples of success which can be applied in Kosovo. Some of the recommendations of this paper are:
• The Government of Kosovo to design incentive packages with the inclusion of green policies.
• The Government of Kosovo to remove taxes on electricity generation equipment from renewable sources.
• The Government of Kosovo to allocate significant funds for the construction of wind farms and photovoltaic power plants.
• Increase awareness campaigns regarding solar self-generation technology and energy efficiency measures.
• The government should establish a joint group, consisting of representatives of various institutions, representatives of businesses and civil society to draft future packages.
