Albanian coast GIS - Vlora

albanian coast vlora

Pilot project area is located in the Vlora district. The area presents a wide variety of physical, climatic, economic and social elements, which all together create interesting conditions for the development of tourism.

As a result of the increase of the number of inhabitants in the coastal zone, and tourism and commercial activities, there is an increase of quantity of pollution load of wastewater discharged in the streams, rivers, and coastal lagoons.

A GIS database for ICZM monitoring and special planning system will be created.

Inventory of current and future use dements and development potations will be prepared.
