Advancing Kosovo Together - Local Solutions activity builds upon successes of previous and current USAID.  The goal of this activity is to foster positive and constructive inter-ethnic communication that can reach a broad range of people who have never engaged with others on common problems, needs, and solutions. The Advancing Kosovo Together- Local Solutions activity will focus on opportunities to get people thinking, talking and engaging with members of the other community. These include grassroots community exchanges, e.g. opportunities to better integrate non-majority and majority markets, including improved overall value chains to encourage long-term economic viability of businesses, and increased responsiveness of local administrations to the service needs of non-majority communities.

The Kosovo Alternative Tourism Association (KATA) was founded in 2010 by a small group of hotel and travel agency owners as an alternative to the country’s national tourism association.
