Proposal on the Designation of Development Regions of Albania
The experience of the Government of Albania (since at least 2007) with regional development policy-making processes is currently approaching a climax, where there is political and institutional understanding and agreement that there should be a merge between the Albanian RD domestic policy/intentions and the EU cohesion/RD policy requirements and obligations. The Government has set the appropriate context for this merge to happen gradually, through the implementation of the Regional Management Mechanisms. The Government is implementing a plan of actions on this regard, and one of the actions consist of establishing development regions (geographical designation) for the implementation of the RD policy. This proposal provides options on the possible demarcation of the boundaries of these development regions. You can read the full proposal here.
