ALDA at the Ministry of State on Local Issues of Albania

On 28 May, ALDA’s delegation composed of Mr Bernardo Notarangelo, member of the Governing Board, and Aldo Xhani, ALDA project manager, met Mr Enea Hoti, advisor of Mr Bledi Cuci, Minister of State on Local Issues of Albania.

***

The meeting was an occasion to showcase ALDA’s multiannual work in the country in promoting good governance and citizen participation at local level as well as the process of relaunch and strengthening of the Local Democracy Agency set up back in 2009. It was also a unique opportunity of being informed on the state of play of the decentralisation reform under discussion in Albania and the stronger role that the LDA could acquire within this framework.

Mr Hoti provided up to date information on both the Territorial and Administrative Reform that aims at rationalising the current territorial division through new local bodies (39 or 47 municipalities) and the Decentralisation strategy that will redefine and better clarify the competencies of the new local entities.

Mr Hoti also welcomed ALDA and it’s the LDA in Albania to keep working for the integration of the country in the European Union through the promotion of good governance and citizen participation. Only through active citizens, Albania can overcome its current difficulties and become a full candidate to join the European family, he said.

Partners meeting of the LDA Albania

The partners meeting of the LDA Albania was held last 28 May at the premises of the Italian-Albanian Chamber of Commerce in Tirana. The event has been a key step of the relaunching and strengthening process of the Agency set in Shkodra in 2009.

***

The meeting brought together both local and international stakeholders to discuss on concrete solutions to reactivate LDA’s activities fully. In particular, the enlargement of the partnership has been a key topic of the debate. The meeting was attended by both current partners such as the Apulia Region and new ones interested in becoming active part of the LDA such as the Region of Vlora, the Municipality of Patos and Lukova, the Centre for Research Cooperation and Develoment, NGO Horizont and the Universities of Tirana and Elbasan.

ALDA was represented by Mr Bernardo Notarangelo, member of the Governing Board, and Mr Aldo Xhani, ALDA project manager. Three main elements were identified as being at the basis of the weakening process of the LDA in 2013: the devitalisation of the local and international components of the partnership as well as a less effective communication. At the same time, several factors were identified as key for a stronger role of the Agency in Albania: ALDA’s firm commitment and interest in promoting good governance and citizen participation in the country, the interest expressed by new partners in joining the partnership and the ongoing decentralisation process in Albania.

The meeting run in a positive atmosphere that strongly contributed to strengthen the bonds among partners and develop new ideas for the relaunch of the LDA. All the proposals have been collected and will constitute the basis for a new action plan. ALDA invites all stakeholders interested in joining the partnership to express their interest to Aldo Xhani at aldo.xhani@aldaintranet.org

Call for stopping all violence in Ukraine and for a stronger presence of the European Union in the resolution of the crisis

ALDA – the European Association for Local Democracy – is engaged in Ukraine in many ways and through partnership, programmes and networks. With the active support of the Region Lower Silesia (Poland) and other European partners, we are working on the project for a Local Democracy Agency in Dnipropetrovsk. In these last months, our partners and members followed with increasing concern the escalation of violence and the risk of a possible emergence of a civil war, entangled in a scary scenario of international conflicts.

Considering our long experience in the Balkans (since 1993), ALDA and its partners involved in our activities in Ukraine are calling for all the parties involved to address with high sense of responsibility the situation, and to support all the possible options to avoid a civil war, which is certainly among the most painful and long lasting scenarios. We are calling for a stronger involvement of the European Union – despite the unfortunate time where most of the institutions are in the process of being re-elected. The European Union has a third path to offer, and needs to become a strong supporter for a democratic Ukraine, positioning itself as a credible and reliable partner with Russia. We consider the transition in Ukraine not finalized yet and at this point, it is fundamental to best support the upcoming elections on 25th of May to stabilize the country, and empower it to ensure security and democracy in the whole territory.

In this context, and in the sequence of steps to bring back the situation on track, we consider fundamental that the process of decentralisation and strengthening of democratic, accountable regional and local authorities – within the framework of a clear unity of the country – will be continued, as it is in line with the policies already studied by the government.

ALDA and the Partners of the future LDA in Dnipropetrovsk are committed and involved in this difficult process.

Call for support to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Croatia - The countries affected by the worst flooding in 120 years

Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Croatia are facing the worst flooding in the last 120 years. Almost a third of Bosnia and Serbia and part of Croatia next to river Sava are submerged, affecting few million people. Moreover, the new flood waves are still coming, the countries are completely mobilized and the number of evacuated people keeps increasing in the three countries.  Very first estimations say that the damage could be between 1.5 and 2 billion euro.

International solidarity actions are already in place to support citizens and local communities – young volunteers in particular are providing assistance after the disastrous flood.

ALDA and the Local Democracy Agencies based in the flood-hit areas call for your support. We are raising funds to help the affected population, and directly address the needs of people and of the local communities.
