IP3 was committed to assist municipalities to develop guiding documents that will serve as a local constitution for next 15 years.
Drafting General Local Plans is a project designed to come up with planning documents at local level according to the new Territorial and Administrative Reform. The project was an iniciative of Ministry of Urban Development and was supported by National Territorial Planning Agency. IP3 was committed to assist Municipality of Kavaja, Divjaka and Rrogozhina to develop guiding documents that will serve as a local constitution for next 15 years.
IP3 has conducted a deep analysis and assessment of all the existing plans, strategies, policies, norms and standards. The team also realized a scanning and evaluation of the territory. The new territorial organization aims to empower the new municipalities by enhancing their capacities to provide high quality and timely services to citizens and increasing the efficiency of local government’s resource management. One of the challenges that municipalities were facing was the development of the territory. Another challenge was to use their natural resources, particularly the agricultural land; how to use the resources or cultivate more in order to achieve economic growth.
