This Capstone project addresses the important problem of functional improvement of Spatial Planning System in Kosovo. Major questions which have been addressed include following: What are the causes and problems that the current system is facing? What is the structure of the organization and what is the actual communication between Central and Municipal levels? What are the technical and human capacities? At what level of priority is the existing spatial planning sector? What is the level of spatial plans execution, and which are obstacles that affect their implementation? What is the existing legal basis and what are the barriers? ... In close cooperation with central and local authorities this project offers real insights in to the current situation in the field of spatial planning. The core issue is spatial planning sector at the central level and relevant departments of planning and urban management at the local level. Particular attention is paid to technical and human capacities at both levels and their ability to offer solutions and to monitor the situation in this field. Based on this research, this project provides a new basic organizational structure of the sector for both levels as a sustainable solution for maintaining existing and building up new capacities.
