The agricultural sector in Kosovo is of great importance regarding economic development of the country as it can considerably contribute to the overall employment, as well as to the growth of Gross Domestic Product. However, despite the importance of this sector in the development of the country and improvement of the current situation, investments in this sector and the exploitation of its potential remain at an unsatisfactory level. In the development of this sector, an important role also belongs to the commitment of local bodies and institutions, in particular to the Ministry of
Agriculture, Forestry and Rural Development. This scientific paper aims to provide a general overview of the current situation of the agriculture sector and its role in the development of the country, as well as to present and analyse on a scientific basis the management of financial resources by local
institutions, in particular of the aforementioned Ministry in the development of this sector. The scientific paper is based on data analysis presented in various financial reports and local strategic documents, laws and regulations in force, interviews with responsible officials as well as other relevant scientific sources in this field. The analysis will be accompanied by tabular and graphical presentation.
