Democratic Governance and Rule of Law

What we do

Still a young democracy, Albanian institutions and people partner with UNDP to make democratic processes and institutions more responsive to the needs of ordinary citizens. UNDP helps strengthen electoral systems and planning processes, improve access to justice and public administration and develop a greater capacity to deliver services to those most in need.Our goal is to help develop state capacities that are accountable, transparent, inclusive and responsive.

Our Goals

Albania is addressing very seriously the twelve key priorities identified in the European Commission’s Opinion through an Action Plan which is being implemented and monitoring their achievement and compliance with the EU criteria and Albania’s obligations.
