Drini Watershed Management in Albania

The innovation is an integrated approach of the natural resources management in order to mitigate effects of floods and other natural hazards (erosion, landslides, droughts, heatwaves, wildfires, rainfall and wind storms). The aim is to identify and restore natural environments by improving land use and vegetation coverage (forestland and agriculture land) in terms of environmental services by planting trees, check-dams installation, fences erection and bareland-burned areas grassseeding lands. There will be building pilot intervention modalities for bioengineering applications that would enable the stabilization of soil erosion and downstream sedimentation and waterfall retention. The aim is to promote a watershed renewable natural resources sustainable management through application of soil stabilization interventions and flood prevention models and simultaneously enhancing the capacity of local communities management.

Developed by ALBAFOREST CENTER
The innovation support the restoration of natural eco-systems of optimal forest management for enhancing the hydrological role of vegetation coverage in rainfall retention and flood prevention. This is done by planting trees and burned area’s re-planting and constructing check-dams and seeding soil stabilizing grasses in selected bare lands in selected Drini river catchments.

TRL6. Prototype system verified
Technology demonstrated in relevant environment. Representative model or prototype system, which is well beyond that of TRL 5, is tested in a relevant environment. Represents a major step up in a technology’s demonstrated readiness. Examples include testing a prototype in a high-fidelity laboratory environment or in a simulated operational environment

See more information about this level and the TRL and SRL levels.

The main components of the system have been tested separately, and an initial integration exercise has been conducted.

How does it work?

The project will demonstrate bio-engineering models intertwined that will be realized through: The main focus and objective/s of the project will be development of basic concepts of Drini watershed for using of forest effect on watershed`s hydrology in terms of flood prevention, and minimizing its consequences including use of forests and communities of tree species growing in and outside the forest.

Limitations/conditions under which this innovation does not work or is less effective

There are not any limitations/conditions under which our innovation does not work or is less effective except the lack of funding to be applied.

Increase protection of biodiversity and demonstration of sustainable management practices globally;

  • – Increasing and strengthening local and national management capacity to combine protected activities and development of biodiversity in urban planning;
  • – Increasing community-based adaptation and resilience against floods and extreme events (erosion, landslides, floods, droughts, heatwaves, wildfires, rainfall and wind storms).
  • – Effective monitoring and dissemination of information collected for each step of the cast; – Build ecosystem profiles and software development for large-scale rehabilitation;
  • – Practical assistance to enhance and strengthen the capacity of local communities for the integrated management of Drin Basin. The 6th objective  The study of migratory bird habitats in the watershed of the River Drin;  Sensitization of communities to act on their behalf;
  • Propose concrete measures to curb pollution prevention and physical, chemical and biological of aqueous environment
