    Albania, Greece, Europe

    The study provides the background and objectives of the Athens workshop, then provides separate in-depth background and analysis of the informal development solutions being adopted in Albania and Greece. Following a review of just how ‘pro-poor’ the solutions are, the final chapter provides a series of lessons learned, many of which can be applied to other countries experiencing informal development issues.

    Albania's radical farmland
    distribution is credited with averting an economic crisis
    and social unrest during the transition. But many believe it
    led to a holding structure too fragmented to be efficient,
    and that public efforts to consolidate plots are needed to
    lay the foundation for greater rural productivity. This
    paper uses farm-level data from the 2005 Albania Living
    Standards Measurement Survey to explore this quantitatively.

    This Country Partnership Framework (CPF)
    sets out the World Bank Group (WBG) program for Albania for
    the period FY15-19, aimed at supporting Albanias aspiration
    to achieve equitable growth and integration into the
    European Union. Albania emerged from the collapse of
    isolationist communism in the early 1990s as one of the
    poorest countries in Europe. The country then experienced
    rapid growth of nearly 6 percent per annum, rising into the

    Changes in climate and their impact on agricultural systems and rural economies are already evident throughout Europe and Central Asia (ECA). Adaptation measures now in use in Albania, largely piecemeal efforts, will be insufficient to prevent impacts on agricultural production over the coming decades. There is growing interest at the country and development partner levels to have a better understanding of the exposure, sensitivities, and impacts of climate change at farm level, and to develop and prioritize adaptation measures to mitigate the adverse consequences.

    Albania's rapid growth in the
    decade up to the 2008 global financial crisis propelled it
    to middle-income status and helped to reduce poverty. The
    global financial crisis in 2008 slammed the brakes on
    Albania's largely domestic-demand-driven growth. The
    government has accumulated sizable arrears in payments for
    public works and value-added tax (VAT) refunds. In a
    baseline scenario of no policy reforms, Albania's

    Albania, Global

    Despite several attempts at reform,
    immovable property rights in Albania are not adequately
    secure and represent an important governance challenge.
    Problems have resulted from incomplete first title
    registration, the lack of accurate cadastral records, and,
    in many cases, the absence of reliable evidence of
    ownership. Although Albania has adopted legislation calling
    for restitution or compensation for owners whose property

    This country note for Albania is part of
    series of country briefs that summarizes information
    relevant to climate change and agriculture for four pilot
    countries in the Europe and Central Asia (ECA) Region, with
    a particular focus on climate and crop projections,
    adaptation options, policy development, and institutional
    involvement. The note series has been developed to provide a
    baseline of knowledge on climate change and agriculture for

    Reducing poverty continues to be one of
    the main priorities of the Government of Albania. Currently,
    Albania has an ample platform to provide social protection
    to its citizens through social insurance, social assistance
    and employment programs. However, these programs are not
    efficiently linked to each other, which can lead to unclear
    and occasionally overlapping roles among the programs. Among
    these social protection programs, Ndihma Ekonomike (NE) is

    Albania is among the most vulnerable
    countries to external energy shocks and climatic conditions,
    because of its high dependency on hydropower for
    electricity. Given highly volatile international energy
    prices and expected global warming, it is becoming
    increasingly important to manage the demand for electricity.
    However, the country has long been faced with a significant
    problem of electricity metering. About one-third of total
