Adaptation to Climate Change through transboundary flood risk management in Western Balkans
German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)
In Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia the project is based on a diversified regional, national and local partner structure. GIZ support consists of advisory services provided by international, regional and local experts, in-service training measures, and procurement of equipment and materials.
The project acts in five key areas:
1) establishing a regional flood early warning system for the Drin River Basin;
2) support for national institutions in drafting climate change adaptation strategies;
3) advisory services during the formulation of local flood risk and drought management plans, and in the implementation of measures to reduce risks;
4) advisory services during the elaboration of transboundary concepts for water resource management;
5) integrating recommendations for climate change adaptation into urban planning and development for the cities of Tirana, Podgorica and Belgrade.
