Result 5 refers to the legislation needed to enable the completion of the transposition of the DWD and the UWWTD. The key word here is ‘enable’: merely transposing the Directives into Albanian law does not guarantee that they would be implemented in compliance with EU requirements. This is why the ToR refer correctly to the legal instruments that might be needed in order that implementation measures can proceed in compliance with Albanian law.

A legal gap analysis has been completed. The report has been delivered to AKUM (11th November 2021). In summary the analysis concluded that:

  • The level of transposition of the UWWTD is 66%
  • The level of transposition of the (old) DWD is 100%
  • The level of implementation in both cases is quite low
