DescriptionThe development objective of the proposed Albania Natural Resources Development Project (NRDP) is to establish or maintain sustainable, community-based natural resource management in about 210 communes in upland and mountainous erosion-prone lands. This will lead to enhanced productivity and incomes derived from sustainable resource management, reduced soil degradation, improved water management, conservation of biodiversity, and strengthened public sector management of these resources. The project global environmental objective is to reverse severe degradation of upland and mountainous erosion-prone lands, and sediment runoff to the Adriatic Sea, through the rehabilitation and sustainable management of natural resources, including globally significant biodiversity.
Implementation StatusThe project was reviewed again for pipeline entry under OP#12 (Multifocal Area) instead of OP#15. The project was approved by Bank board on June 9, 2005.
