Much of the economic activity in southwest Albania’s coastal areas hinges on the Karaburun-Sazan peninsula. But the health of the ecosystem has been at risk due to cooking oils being dumped in the sea. So restaurants and businesses have taken on a unique recycling initiative to reclaim this natural beauty.
This is the UNDP-Albania Country Programme which outlines our four programme pillars: Democratic Governance and Rule of Law, Promoting Social Inclusion and the rights of vulnerable communities, Ensuring that young women and men have opportunities and skills, and Environment and Climate Change.
UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in some 170 countries and territories, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners. Present in Albania since 1991, UNDP works with the Government and People of Albania, including its civil society and businesses, to strengthen the rule of law, promote human rights and freedoms, protect the environment and support economic and social reforms for social inclusion and an equitable society.
