Reducing corrupt practices in environmental decision-making
Corruption risks in the field of environmental impact assessments have yet to be assessed critically in Albania despite numerous allegations of fraud and partiality. Albanian institutions responsible for and involved in environmental impact assessments are ill-prepared to fend off corruption attempts due to political pressure particularly in high-profit industries such as hydropower and mining. Ongoing institutional reforms have also complicated responsibilities for environmental permitting and licensing. Improved definition of responsibilities in environmental assessments and decision-making, and training of relevant staff is required for better outcomes. A study and training workshop will be generated as part of this project.
