Major Hazards & Albanian Civil Protection

Albania is vulnerable to a number of natural and man-made hazards and risks which include earthquakes, torrential floods, dam burst floods, forest fires, droughts and industrial accidents. The most recurrent disasters are major floods, which occur especially in the north-eastern and south-eastern regions of the country. Albania ranks as one of the countries with the highest economic risk in the world from multiple hazards, with 86% of its territory prone to two or more disasters, where 88.5% of GDP is generated. The impact of disasters in Albania and the vulnerability of its citizens affected by them are significantly compounded by a relatively high degree of poverty, lack of infrastructure maintenance, unsafe building and land use practices linked to rapid urbanization, depletion of natural resources as well as by the various consequences of the transition from a state-controlled economy to a free-market one.
