Much of the Irrigation and Drainage infrastructure in Albania is degraded due to years of neglect. The main weaknesses in I&D sector governance include: (i) poor I&D service delivery; (ii) poor condition of I&D infrastructure, with many canals and pumping stations no longer operational and many dams exhibiting safety concerns; and (iii) weak capacities of Water Users Organizations (WUOs) and/or Water Users Associations (WUAs) with poor or no Operation and Maintenance (O&M) cost recovery. This project provides for rehabilitation and/or modernization of irrigation infrastructure in Semani and Drini-Buna regions in close consultation with farmers to make the best choice.
This project focuses on the Supervision of the Civil Works Contract for the rehabilitation/modernization of 5 irrigation schemes, including design reviewing, changes to original drawings, monitoring, inspection, and reporting activities of standard supervision.
