The OSCE Presence in Albania has been supporting the Albanian authorities to raise their capacities and understanding of environmental crime issues since 2015. The support has consisted of the establishment of an inter-agency approach to tackle environmental crime issues in a consistent, multi-disciplinary and cross-sectorial approach. As such, an inter-institutional group against environmental crimes (IGEC) was established in 2015 composed of 11 law enforcement institutions. The IGEC has identified a strategic action plan 2018-2021 with several measures to prevent, prosecute and deter environmental crimes at national and local level. In addition, the Presence has supported the preparation of a handbook on the functions and competences of local authorities in preventing environmental crimes. In 2020, the Presence will maintain a focus on its work with civil society. In this context, the Presence will interact more effectively with law enforcement agencies in order to raise awareness and make local authorities more accountable in preventing and deterring environmental crimes. Focus will be given to the increase of visibility for the sector deemed as priority for Albania. Awareness raising, targeted capacity building measures about environmental crimes and collaboration are required to support the various stakeholders involved in the fight against environmental crime in Albania, to raise the profile and priority relevance of environmental crime in the country.
In this context, the project plans to increase the public outreach of our work in the sector through the means of infographics, short videos and the power of statistics to highlight our work to the external and larger audiences.
