The Drin Dialogue

The journey towards coordinated action begins

The multi-stakeholder process for the establishment of the Shared Vision, the Drin Dialogue, was formally launched during a meeting organized on 1 December 2009 in Podgorica. The meeting brought together representatives of the competent ministries for water resources management of Albania, North Macedonia and Montenegro, as well as the existing formal joint lake basin management commissions/committees. It was decided that the UNECE and GWP-Med would facilitate the implementation of the Drin Dialogue.

The Drin Core Group was established by the Podgorica meeting as a structure to facilitate communication and cooperation among the Riparians and coordination of the implementation of the Drin Dialogue.

Furthermore, the Podgorica meeting discussed and agreed on the content of the Drin Dialogue, its objectives, activities and timeframe.

A project supporting the Drin Dialogue ran from 1 May 2010 until 30 November 2011 with the financial support of the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. Pursuant to the decisions of the Podgorica meeting, the project aimed to develop a Strategic Shared Vision for the sustainable management of the Drin Basin through a structured and coordinated multi-stakeholder consultation process.

Outcomes achieved, included:

(a)   The key issues in the Basin linked with water resources management were identified and briefly analysed;

(d)   The Drin Dialogue was implemented through national and regional consultation meetings;
