Comprehensive analysis of disaster risk reduction and management system for agriculture in Albania

Source(s):  Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations - Headquarters (FAO)

This comprehensive review includes a general overview of Albania’s agriculture sector as well as an outline of the natural hazard, risk and agriculture profile, followed by an analysis of the existing legal, policy and institutional structure. Various components, such as the functioning of early warning systems (EWS), assessments of disaster risks and the availability of agricultural insurance for farmers are discussed. Finally, the report concludes by providing recommendations for the improvement of the current system.

The study has been conducted through the collection of secondary data sources by completing a detailed literature review of all relevant laws, policy and strategy documents, reports and articles on the current state of disaster risk reduction in Albania with a specific focus on the agricultural sector. Several semi-structured interviews were also conducted with staff from e.g. the Ministry of Agriculture, the Institute of Geosciences, Energy, Water and Environment. In addition, findings from small working group discussions conducted during a regional DRR learning exchange visit to Ljubljana, Slovenia from 15-17 March 2017 were included in this report.
