The aim of the project "Advocacy for a decentralized, participatory and integrated water policy" is to support the shift from a state-controlled water policy to a decentralized, participative and integrated water policy in Albania that will stimulate the involvement of all stakeholders in this area to better meet local economic and social needs or protect the environment.
Namely, in Albania, where agricultural land is fertile and the climate is favorable, one limiting factor is water and irrigation quality and management. The irrigation management based on participation through water users organizations - volunteer farmers' associations, established in accordance with the Law on Irrigation and Drainage, was supported by World Bank projects for almost 15 years. Today, the management of irrigation is centralized and the aim of this project will be to initiate a dialogue on the re-decentralization of irrigation, ie. to make changes to the draft law on irrigation and drainage in order to decentralize the irrigation system management and enable the participation of water user organizations and other relevant stakeholders in this area.
The project will establish a working group that will engage in research in order to create policy proposals, by lobbying for the adoption of decentralized water policy and raising public awareness of the importance of a more efficient irrigation system in Albania.
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 (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia), AKTIV (Kosovo *), CZIP (Montenegro), led by ORCA (Serbia).
