Project "Advocacy in the field of health, productivity, and welfare of small ruminants in the rural areas of the Gjirokaster region in southern Albania" is implemented by association "Royal Albania Foundation" from Albania, with the support of its partners. The goal of the project is to diversify the system and increase food production in order to achieve food security in the Gjirokaster region through thestrengthened and sustainable growing of small ruminants and an improved policy framework in this area.
During the year of implementation, the project will influence the Regional Administration for Agriculture and Municipal Administrations to allocate financial resources for the vaccination of small ruminants and compensation to farmers for all animals tested positive for brucellosis, anthrax, and agalactia in accordance with the provisions of the Veterinary Law of Albania. In addition, this project will provide support to decision makers in four municipalities to develop the Animal Health and Welfare Strategy, or its implementation on their territory. Also, the project reinforces the awareness of rural communities (especially women and young farmers) about the importance of animal welfare, sustainable livestock practices, including minimum national standards and environmental protection through better management of animal waste.
The project is funded by the European Union within the regional project "Sustainable agriculture for sustainable Balkans: Strengthening advocacy capacities of CSOs and developing policies in the Western Balkans" implemented by the regional consortium of CSOs: IEP (Albania), FLOROZON (the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia), AKTIV (Kosovo *), CZIP (Montenegro), led by ORCA (Serbia).
