Under the project, the Albanian authorities also plan to draft National Strategy for Integrated Water Resources Management and to prepare management plans for the Drina-Buna and Seman river basins. Albania and the World Bank signed in December 2012 a EUR 31mn loan deal. The 23-year credit will have a grace period of seven years. In addition, the Swedish government will provide a EUR 3.88mn grant, which will be used to finance the establishment of a national database on water resources in Albania.
