The Future of Water in Agriculture in Albania - A Broad Sector Rethink (English)

Investment in agricultural water management can potentially contribute to many of Albania’s development goals. Due to its continental Mediterranean environment, with four distinct seasons and relatively abundant water and land resources, biophysically Albania has a comparative advantage in agricultural development. Given this reality it is paradoxical that the country is a net importer of agricultural commodities. Albanian agriculture satisfies only 30 percent of the country’s demand for food and feed, with a trade deficit of $680 million. The government hopes to boost agricultural production by providing financial support to farmers and facilitating private investment in the agro-processing sector.
