MARGETA, J., and PAVASOVIC, S. (preparation of GIS data base). 1996. Water Resources Management Study for the Erzeni and Ishmi Rivers: Water Resources Assessment. Split: PAP/RAC. pp. iv + 61. ENG
One of the activities carried out by the Priority Actions Programme Regional Activity Centre (PAP/RAC) within the framework of MAP Coastal Area Management Programme (CAMP) "Albanian Coastal Region" is the Water Resources Management. The long-term objectives of the activity are to contribute to the protection and rational use of water resources in Albania as a whole and, particularly in its coastal area, and thereby to create necessary conditions for development of tourism and other activities. The immediate objectives are to assess the availability of water resources and their quality, to propose measures for pollution prevention, to analyse the existing water resources management system, and to recommend a system of monitoring and sanitary control. Furthermore, the objective of this activity is also to present the water balance of the existing and future needs for water, and to recommend a feasible approach to the planning and implementation of development projects. The main output of this activity, as decided, is Water Resources Management Study for the Erzeni and Ishmi Rivers. The Study presents , in an integrated manner, all the characteristics of water resources of these two watersheds in order to enable proposing the optimal system of their exploitation and protection in accordance with present and future demands of the region. Also, this Study sets priorities with regard to the relevant inventions in this area. The result of the Study is to enable future activities to be precisely defined and rational solutions to be sought out for sustainable management of water resources of the Erzeni and Ishmi rivers. This document presents the first part of the Water Resources Management Study, containing a description and analysis of water resources of Erzeni and Ishmi rivers.
PAP/RAC. 1995. Albania Coastal Zone Management Plan: Final Report - Phase One. Split: PAP/RAC. pp. xix + 118. ENG
This report is part of an overall Coastal Zone Management Action Plan for the northern and southern parts of Albania's coastal zone. This project and this report focus only on the coastal area, which without doubt represents one of the most valuable assets of Albania from the points of view of development and environment. The most important overall goal of the CZM Plan is to preserve ecological integrity through establishing ecologically sustainable limits for resource use. The strategic objectives of the Plan are: to promote conservation of Albania’s biodiversity, cultural heritage and coastal and marine-related tourism and ecotourism industry; to enhance employment creation opportunities and institutional capacity; and to recommend a series of investment projects that will help “kick-start” the coastal economy in an incremental way.
PAP/RAC. 1995. Albania Coastal Zone Management Plan: Final Report - Phase Two. Split: PAP/RAC. pp. xiv + 80. ENG
This report covers the results of PAP/DMI studies in Phase Two of the Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP). The main objective of Phase Two of the CZM plan is to elaborate the Coastal Investment Projects which were identified as priority in the Phase One. The Regional Concept Plan Management Areas establishes a context for preparing a conceptual management plan for the three coastal investment projects (and 12 sub-projects): Velipoja, Karaburuni and Saranda-Butrinti. Based on the management plans for Velipoja, Karaburuni and Saranda-Butrinti, a preliminary master plan for each project was prepared to further detail project components and establish an organisation and framework of land use, transportation, and services infrastructure. The potential investment options and an assessment of coastal investment project costs and probable benefits are based on an analysis of the detailed project components identified by the preliminary master plans.
GNILSEN, R. 1994. Albania Coastal Zone Management Phase I - Sections on Environmental and Infrastructure Aspects. Split: PAP-RAC/DMI. pp. 39.
This sectorial study presents the location and quantity of water resources in the Adriatic and Ionian Coasts, the existing state of coastal and marine uses and environmental effects, the use of coastal land for agriculture and industry (problems and potential); for infrastructure and energy; and for urban and rural development. Departing from the analysis of the existing situation, the study gives a proposal of those components of the infrastructure systems which need to be improved as a matter of priority. These components are water supply, liquid and solid waste management, energy, transportation and telecommunications.
