Tirana, Albania

Back to all Network Members

The capital of Albania joins the BreatheLife network armed with detailed urban transformation plans that tackle some of the most pressing concerns of cities— traffic congestion, urban sprawl, air pollution — and are changing how it grows and moves, with co-benefits for air quality and climate.

The General Local Plan, for the first time ever, has provided the city with a blueprint for development that recognizes the importance of sustainability and environmentally-friendly policies. Indeed, we view them as crucial to the creation of a sustainable municipal environment which will stimulate the capital’s economic growth and improve living conditions for our citizens.

Erion Veliaj, Mayor of Tirana
