European Union Support to Integrated Water Management
The Austrian Development Agency implemented the EU-funded project “European Union Support to Integrated Water Management” in Albania. Building on the IPA 2016 Action Programme for Albania for the Support to Water Management, and in line with the country strategy of the Austrian Development Cooperation for Albania (2015 – 2020), the overall objectives of this Project contributed to the enhancement of the implementation of the National Water Reform and Albania’s progress towards EU water legislation requirements. The Agency for Water Resources Management was a direct project beneficiary.
This project helped strengthen capacities for managing the sector in line with EU policies, and consolidated earlier efforts in that direction. The Urban Research Institute supported new legal framework in the field of water management, improved in an inclusive and evidence-based manner and implemented and enforced in line with the EU requirements.
