Law no 155/2020 on climate change
This law aims to contribute to the country's reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, to adaptation actions, and to global climate change efforts by ensuring obligations of the Republic of Albania to the UNFCCC are being met. It establishes a comprehensive legal and inter-institutional framework for climate action at the national level in line with EU regulations. It also recognises the climate emergency.
The law regulates greenhouse gas emissions from stationary and mobile sources, by products and substances, and the conditions for capture and geological deposition of carbon dioxide. It further sets a monitoring, reporting and verification framework on GHG emissions at the sectoral/resource level.
