There are three Aarhus Centres in Albania. The first Aarhus Centre was inaugurated in 2006 in the capital city of Tirana. The two other Aarhus Centres operate in the cities of Shkodra (since 2007) and Vlora (since 2007). The Aarhus Centres in Albania have been focusing on promoting dialogue among different stakeholders regarding environmental issues and on strengthening the implementation of the Aarhus Convention through partnerships. Recently, they also have been engaging in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR).
