First National Communication
The First National Communication of Albania is the first assessment of the Albania’s present situation with regard to climate change. At the same time, it serves as the basis for future action, research, improvement, offering opportunities for policy refinement and development.
This document goes beyond the reporting commitments of a non-Annex I Party, under the existing guidelines for the preparation of National Communications from non-Annex I Parties, as Albania is, to the UNFCCC. Albania, for the first time has developed the National Action Plan, which addresses the climate change issues as a part of the updated Environmental Action Plan, despite of its low level of contribution in greenhouse gas emissions.
