MCC VP Mandaville visits Kosovo Hydrometeorological Institute of Kosovo
Kosovo Hydrometeorological Institute was among the stops in a series of visits the MCC Vice President Alicia Phillips Mandaville is making during her three-day stay in Kosovo.
During the visit at KHMI, the MCC delegation had the opportunity to get a closer look at the upgraded Air Quality database and new monitoring stations, a technology supported by MFK and MCC, as part of the Air Quality activities.
The Air Quality Project aimed to help the National Institute of Public Health (NIPH) and the Kosovo Hydro-Meteorological Institute (KHMI) collect and disseminate information on air quality while improving the public availability and analytical use of environmental data by businesses, the Government, Civil Society, and NGOs, thus promoting data-driven decision-making.
MFK is an accountable entity responsible for the implementation of the $49 million Threshold agreement, signed by the Republic of Kosovo and the Millennium Challenge Corporation in 2017. MFK’s mission statement calls for accelerating Kosovo’s transition to energy independence and good governance. Kosovo Threshold Program addresses two key constraints to Kosovo’s economic growth: an unreliable supply of electricity; and real and perceived weakness in rule of law, government accountability and transparency. This project specifically aims to improve the public availability and analytical use of environmental data by businesses, the Government, Civil Society, and NGOs, thus promoting data driven decision-making.
