SEGURA assessed opportunities for USAID to support accelerated economic development and income generation in North Kosovo with a particular focus on North Mitrovicë/a.
The specific tasks for this assessment were:
- Assessment of Economic Conditions in North Kosovo
The consulting team took a broad approach to assess the economic conditions and needs in the communities by considering economic policies, private sector opportunities and constraints, and related inhibitors of economic growth for quick-impact projects.
- Identification of Possible Economic Development Projects
The consulting team identified a list of possible projects for USAID economic support in the region by taking into consideration the local political situation, sound macro- and microeconomic principles, and lessons learned from international experiences in similar complex ethic settings.
- Prioritization and Timing of USAID Interventions
By analyzing interventions from a short-term, medium-term, and long-term perspective, the consulting team rated project priorities to guide USAID/Kosovo on the relative importance of proposed projects.
