Albania is a flood-prone country that has faced changing rainfall patterns with stronger and longer rainfall periods over the past 15 years. The inadequate infrastructure increases the severity of floods every few years in the northern part of Albania (especially in the fertile, low-lying areas of Shkoder, Lezha, Fier, and Lushnje) and landslides affect villages situated in sloping areas. Red Cross Albania is working as part of the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance to build community flood resilience in flood-prone communities. This brief provides an overview to where, and how we work in Albania, and why flood resilience is such a pressing issue in the areas where we work.
