National Capacity Self-Assessment (NCSA) for Global Environment Management

Project Summary

The objective of the National Capacity Self Assessment is to assess capacity needs and priorities with respect to the global environment and within the context of sustainable development so that Albania can meet the requirements of the Global Environmental Conventions in a coordinated and strategic manner. The NCSA will take into account the Conventions on biodiversity, climate change and land degradation and will focus on cross-cutting issues and synergies between the Conventions. The NCSA will result in the preparation of a National Action Plan, addressing agreed priority issues, that will describe in practical terms the activities Albania will implement, including the resources required, to address the capacity constraints identified in the assessment. In addition to contributing towards global environmental goals, the NCSA will have direct benefits for environmental management and sustainable development in Albania.
