Since the end of the war in Kosovo in 1999, UN-HABITAT has been promoting good governance, security of tenure, sustainable human settlements development and inclusive spatial planning in Kosovo and the broader region. UN-HABITAT’s interventions were focused on the establishment of institutions to deal with property and planning issues, such as the Housing and Property Directorate, the Kosovo Cadastre Agency, the Institute for Spatial Planning within the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning. The other line of interventions went to building capacities for efficient management of local governments through capacity building programmes and on the job assistance: LoGo (Local Government Programme), and Municipal Support Programme (MSP 2000-2001), Urban Planning and Management Programme (UPMP, 2001-2003), the Governance and Development Planning Programme (GDPP, 2003-2006), Municipal Spatial Planning Support Programme phase 1, (2005-2008) phase 2, (2008-2011), and the ongoing phase 3, (2011-2014). The programmes were funded respectively by the Government of the Netherlands (MSP, UPMP, GDPP) and the Swedish Government through Sida (MuSPP1, MuSPP2 and MuSPP3). (More information on MuSPP3 under Programmes).

Through these combined interventions, a new planning system has been developed, anchored and institutionalised.
