UNESCO had assisted the Government of Albania in conducting a review of its Science and Technology System in 1993. Today, UNESCO is collaborating with other UN agencies, within the framework of One UN, to prepare a programme of reform of the Science and Technology System and update the country's National Science and Technology Policy.

Albania is participating in the Internationally Shared Aquifers Resources Management Programme (ISARM) in the Balkans. ISARM, recognizing the regional importance of groundwater resources, aims to compile a world inventory of transboundary aquifers and develop wise practices and guidance tools concerning shared groundwater resources management through a network of experts and specialists.

Below you can access the projects that are currently being implemented in the country within the framework of UNESCO’s Natural Sciences Sector.
