Institutional Reform in Albania: Making Forest-Based Policies Work
Abstract:In response to such problems as illegal timber harvesting and overgrazing, policymakers in Albania are making efforts to increase the efficiency of the country's forest and pasture administration. Reforms include decentralization, development of infrastructure and human resources, and the introduction of a forestry extension service. The authors explore several options and posit that it is more appropriate to work with existing establishments and build partnerships among stakeholders than to create new organizations.
