Country Profile: Climate, Geography, Socio-Economic Context

Country Profile: Water Bodies and Resources

Croatia is endowed with relatively abundant water resources and characterized by great rivers and the karst coastal area. Water resources differ by their size and their distribution in time and space. Water management includes a number of activities, measures and decisions aimed at maintaining, improving and ensuring unity of the water regime in a specific area. Water regime is determined by essential water management principles and water management plans.

Country Profile: Trends in Water Use, Management and Sanitation

The Government of Albania has begun the preparation of a National Water Strategy (with funding by the EU) to set out polices on the efficient management and protection of water resources, and to specify an appropriate legal framework for the management of water resources. However, the lack of adequate monitoring systems, the rapid changes in economic activities, and the continuous movements in population make it difficult to assess the use of water resources. Available data suggests that irrigation and mining rely mostly on surface water, while households and industry on groundwater from aquifers. Domestic water demand is increasing not only because of population growth but also because of the increase in the level of water losses, estimated to be greater than 50 percent in all cities.
