The development objective of the Environmental Services Project (ESP) for Albania is to support sustainable land management practices and increase communities' monetary and non-monetary benefits in targeted project areas which are mainly in erosion prone rural upland areas.
The complementary program supports and builds the young cross-border biosphere reserve in the Prespa Ohrid region and promotes the Prespa National Park. It contributes to the protection of biodiversity and to the fight against poverty in the Albanian Prespa region.
Since a geoid is the ratified framework on which mapping and measuring work in each country is based, creating a common geodetic reference frame for neighbouring Balkan countries will facilitate seamless combination of geographic data across borders.
The action aims at implementing the first half of ILC’s strategy 2016-2021 to realise land governance for and with people at the country level, responding to the needs and protecting the rights of those who live on and from the land, i.e. to bring about change at the country level.
The goal of the grant to the ILC was to enable poor women and men to achieve secure and equitable access to and control over land to enable them to increase their food security and overcome poverty and vulnerability.
The project will contribute to competence and capacity building for the Albanian Hydrographic Service (AHS) and the Military Geographical Institute (MIG). Both institutes are led by the Ministry of Defense.
