Saturday, 20 May, 2017

The Joint work plan of the Environment and Climate Change Outcome of the United Nations –Government of Albania Programme of Cooperation is up and running!

After a productive dialogue between counterparts from participating ministries, international partners and UN agencies the biannual document has been signed.

The Outcome is formulated as follows: Government and non-government actors adopt and implement innovative, gender-sensitive national and local actions for environmental sustainability, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and disaster risk reduction.

The rolling 2-year work plan highlights 14 “strategic deliverables” in two areas – Scaled up action on DRR and climate change mitigation and adaptation across sectors, and Central and local institutions and communities are strengthened to ensure the conservation and sustainable use of natural resources.

The other three Outcomes (Governance & Rule of Law, Social Cohesion, and Economic & Agricultural Development) are in the final stages of discussion, and their Work plans will be finalized soon. This way, the new 5 year Programme of Cooperation on Sustainable Development between the Government of Albania and the UN will start its first year of implementation.
