Hide / Show Abstract

Albania’s environmental management is based mainly on command and control regulatory instruments (permitting, inspections), although economic instruments have been strengthened in some areas since the first EPR. The latter are used largely as income generators although there are cases where their structure supports environmental objectives. It is important to strengthen existing instruments and to establish new ones or re-establish abolished ones.
