USAID and Sweden are financing a three-year $ 1 million D2T project, which will advance a sustainable tourism sector in the municipality of Dibër, developing eco-friendly, natural, cultural and agro-tourism tourism. The innovative D2T project is being implemented by the Albanian Local Development Capacity Foundation (ALCDF) in close partnership with the Municipality of Dibra, CNVP and the local action group, Dibra Turistike.
Dibra, one of the most beautiful mountainous regions of Albania, surrounded by mountainous areas Deshat-Korab and Lure-Selishtë, with 21 glacial lakes, two national parks and popular thermal baths, has the potential to support a vibrant tourist industry. However, the area has poor infrastructure and road access, there has been little involvement in the private sector, and high levels of poverty and unemployment continue. Dibra: The Trail and Tradition Project seeks to increase employment, especially among young people and women, and to increase the income of Dibra’s households involved in tourism supplies.

The goal of EcoNord is to strengthen the technical capacity of CSOs in the regions of northern Albania.

As a group, the 28 EU Commissioners have the ultimate political responsibility for ensuring that EU funds are spent properly. But because most of the funding is managed within the beneficiary countries, responsibility for conducting checks and annual audits lies with national governments.
