The project is implemented as part of the 2nd Round of Calls for Project Proposals – IPA Cross Border Programme Albania-Kosovo 2014 – 2020 funded by the European Union and managed by the Delegation of The European Commission in Albania.

 

It will be implemented in the course of three years and is expected to conclude by December 2022.

Results

Results

The main results/outputs of the Clean Water in Gjakovë/Djakovica and Kukës Project include development of local/regional water policies, citizen engagement and stakeholder involvement in ensuring higher water security in the cross-border region.

 

It will further directly contribute to the improvement of water quality in rivers through two major infrastructure investments – one for each side of the border. While in Gjakovë/Djakovica, construction of river bank in Llukac and development of waste water system alongside the same will considerably reduce river water pollution, in Kukes, the main waste water collector of the city will be reconstructed.

 

The project will also include monitoring activities as well as capacity development for civil society organizations and activists.

The main target audiences and beneficiaries of the project are:

Municipality of Gjakovë/Djakovica and Kukës local government have shown their commitment to Clean Water in their territories, through investment projects to date, and through planned investments as part of the proposed Action.

 

Both LGs have limited capacities in terms of equipment and human resources but are willing to make the necessary policy and practice improvements in their respective territories.

Public Utility Companies Radoniqi in Gjakova and Kompania Ujesjelles Kanalizime SH.A in Kukes, also have considerable limitations in resources and do not cover the entire territory or population with their services. They also lack management capacities and often have difficulties in collecting dues from clients/users.

Local Businesses in the CBC regions will also be both target group and final beneficiary of the project.

Particularly businesses involved in completing the works contracts, will represent major beneficiaries of the proposed Action. On the other hand, businesses will also be targeted with campaigning, and ensuring their compliance with wastewater and sewage systems required for industrial entities.

Local CSOs, also represent a key target audience and final beneficiary. They will directly benefit form capacity development activities, and participate in local processes and policy formulation and monitoring.

Local Communities, represent the single biggest beneficiary of the proposed Action.

 

Their benefit comes from improved services, public health, cleaner environment, and overall improved quality of life.

They will also be targeted with campaigns to ensure future pollution does not occur.

Other municipalities, outside the direct territory of Gjakovë/Djakovica and Kukes.

 

The investments in Llukac will clean the water of the River, making it much cleaners in the outflow from the municipal territory. Similarly, the wastewater collector in Kukes, will enable cleaner water flow into the Fierze Lake, which currently flows untreated.

 

The pollution that these rivers and streams take to the sea coast will also be reduced once the investments are made.
