Agency of Environment and Forestry


The Agency of Environment and Forestry was set up through the restructuring of two institutes directly dependent upon the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Water Administration (MEFWA). The structure was approved by Order of the Albanian Prime Minister.
The duties and scope of activities of the AEF are stipulated in Albania's environmental legislation. The Agency is envisaged to act as the central focus for environmental monitoring and to provide high quality reference and general laboratory services. The Environmental legal framework in Albania defines a set of duties for MEFWA, and is going through a process of approximation to EU legislation. Mission of AEF is to restore, improve and protect the environment, while ensuring sustainable development.
