The overall goal of the Promoting Private Sector Employment (PPSE) project in Kosovo is to facilitate operations of growing and resilient SMEs and farms in the food and natural ingredients and tourism sectors that provide decent work and income opportunities for women and men in Kosovo. The project is focused on two main sectors: Food and Natural Ingredients and Tourism.
Through the cross-cutting themes of governance and gender equality and social inclusion, the project facilitates dialogue and advisory services for value chain actors, while exploring opportunities for engaging women and minorities, tailored to their needs.
Building upon the results and project insights in Phase II (2017 - 2021), Phase III tackles private sector development and job creation with more emphasis on youth, women and minorities.
