On Friday 24 April, Albania, Greece, Kosovo*, Montenegro and North Macedonia will be endorsing the Strategic Action Programme for the sustainable management of the Drin river basin, with over 100 agreed actions to tackle common challenges and promote sustainable development in the region.

Ministers and high-level representatives from all 5 riparians of the Drin Basin will meet virtually on Friday 24 April to endorse the Strategic Action Programme developed with the support of the GEF / UNDP / GWP-Med / UNECE Drin Programme, setting out more than 100 agreed actions to enable sustainable water management in the Drin Basin, directly benefiting its 1.6 million inhabitants.
