News National Nexus consultation meeting in Albania

National Nexus consultation meeting in Albania brings together stakeholders from all related sectors:

Economic and social development in Albania crucially depends on the availability and good quality of natural resources, which are, however, under increasing pressure. In order to assist towards an optimised overall security of resources, the Nexus SEE project is promoting an integrated Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystems Nexus approach that aims at reconciling potentially conflicting interests of different sectors as they compete for the same scarce resources, while capturing existing opportunities for synergies and exploring emerging ones.

In the context of the project’s activities in Albania, an online Nexus consultation meeting was convened on 14 December 2020, in order to gather sectoral perspectives on cross-sectoral interlinkages and inform the preparation of the Nexus Assessment. Representatives from the Ministry of Tourism and Environment, the Water Resources Management Agency, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and the National Environment Agency shared the latest developments in policymaking in the fields of water resources, water supply and sanitation, energy, irrigation and drainage, forestry and biomass, and environmental protection.
