The Government of Albania issued a National Policy Paper on disaster risk reduction approved by Government on 21 January 2000 entitled “Policy on Civil Emergency Planning and Response”. This was the same year as supporting legislation on matters pertaining to Civil Emergency Issues was passed.

The main mechanisms for enforcing the policy have been centered on the creation of a Department of Civil Emergency Planning and Response, in the Ministry of Local Government and Decentralization. With the support of the UNDP Disaster Management and Emergency Preparedness Programme (DMEP), some of the main priority areas of the policy have been pursued through the development of the Disaster Risk Reduction in Albani(published by the Ministry in 2002) and the National Civil Emergency Plan for Albania which is in its final stages of approval before being passed into law.
