RURALBANIA originates from the conclusions and recommendations that emerged from the Final Evaluation of the Alliance Project for the Development of Family Farming, Northern Albania

The project has generated good practices at the level of development of the sheep and goat supply chain, management of agricultural financing schemes and promotion of typical agri-food productions that can be capitalized and extended to other traditional high-potential agricultural chains (e.g. honey, fruit) and to neighboring mountain areas (Kukes, Dibra).
