In the field of social infrastructure and services, Italian Cooperation supports programmes aimed at improving the living conditions of the population, with particular attention to the most vulnerable, contributing to strengthening the capacity of local institutions and improving the system of access to basic services.
After an initial phase of contingent interventions worth over €30 million in response to social and health emergencies, the major structural projects for local development have been carried out as part of the World Bank’s Community Works Programme. The programmes funded in this area generally provide for the construction or upgrading of the infrastructure of essential services, in particularly disadvantaged rural areas or in the suburbs of the country’s major cities.
The Programme of primary infrastructure works in the district of Lapraka on the outskirts of Tirana is currently in the completion phase. It provides interventions to renovate and improve water and sewerage networks, electricity supply, and the maintenance of road surfaces and green areas.
