Shpend Ahmeti- Mayor of Prishtina Municipality

The mayor Shpend Ahmeti mentioned the commitments of the municipal government to implement a radical transparency, as he said. Further commitments were to push forward the law for Prishtina as capital city, even if they didn't pronounce these commitments publicly. Furthermore he mentioned that there is a new approach to cooperation with the civil society organization, one example for this is a signed agreement with the NGO FOL to monitor public procurement processes in the municipality.

Shpend Ahmeti, mayor of Pristina, Kosovo

Pristina is Europe's newest capital city, a status it earned in 2008 when Kosovo declared independence from Serbia. Pristina is also one of Europe's youngest cities, in terms of the age of its roughly 350,000 residents.
Shpend Ahmeti has been Pristina's mayor since the end of 2013. A Harvard-trained economist, he previously was a public policy professor at the American University of Kosovo. The Guardian once called Ahmeti "Europe's bravest mayor" for taking on corruption despite an apparent plot to assassinate him.
Ahmeti displayed some of that determination at last week's Climate Action conference in Washington. On a panel with the mayors of Montreal and Miami, Ahmeti boasted that even a small and relatively poor city like his is planting trees, buying buses and taking other steps to slash greenhouse-gas emissions. "A lot of people said we're small, we can't influence climate change, we're too poor so let's leave it to the big countries," he said. "We're not too small. We can influence it. It doesn't matter how poor you are, we're all in the same boat."
I caught up with Ahmeti after his talk to hear more about how he's leading Pristina. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
