Presentation of the Territorial Strategy of the Municipality of Kukes

In the framework of the Program for Decentralization and Local Development (DLDP), EuroPartners Development supported the new Municipality of Kukës on drafting the Territorial Strategy of the Municipality of Kukës.

This program is funded by the Swiss Government through HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation.
The first phase, which started in August 2014 and ended in March 2015, concluded with the drafting of the Functional Area Development Program. It was a document that included a detailed analysis of the economic situation and social status of the area of ​​Kukës.

DLDP organized a competition among the documents of the Functional Area Program on the final stage of this phase, where Europartners Development was awarded the first prize. This award was donated to the Municipality of Kukës in order to anticipate the needs of the municipality administration.

Preparation activities for the second phase started in November 2015. The territorial reform, which was made effective just before the initiation of the second phase, made changes of the administrative boundaries included in the Territorial Strategy.

The Europartners Development Team organized several information / consultation activities and discussions which helped achieving a more comprehensive approach towards the territory of the Municipality of Kukës. The Territorial Strategy of the Municipality Kukës was drafted as a final stage of this process.

Closing of both phases was finalized through a donor conference attended by the Mayor of Kukës, the Albania"s ambassador in Kosovo, the Ambassador of Denmark in Albania and the UNDP Coordinator in Albania. During the conference, EPD Team presented the vision, strategic directions and the priorities on the territorial development of the Municipality of Kukës in the year 2030.
