i-icon World Bank Income Classification:Low Income The World Bank classifies economies for analytical purposes into four income groups: low, lower-middle, upper-middle, and high income. For this purpose it uses gross national income (GNI) per capita data in U.S. dollars, converted from local currency using the World Bank Atlas method, which is applied to smooth exchange rate fluctuations. i-icon Least Developed Country:Yes Since 1971, the United Nations has recognized LDCs as a category of States that are deemed highly disadvantaged in their development process, for structural, historical and also geographical reasons. Three criteria are used: per capita income, human assets, and economic vulnerability. i-icon Gender Inequality Index:0.575 GII is a composite metric of gender inequality using three dimensions: reproductive health, empowerment and the labour market. A low GII value indicates low inequality between women and men, and vice-versa. i-icon Gender Development Index:0.723 GDI measures gender inequalities in achievement in three basic dimensions of human development: health, education, and command over economic resources.

Strategic Note Outcome Progress Note Showing data of : 2022

By 2026, all persons benefit from, and contribute to, innovative and integrated policy solutions that accelerate sustainable, productive and inclusive development, enhanced climate change adaptation and mitigation and transition to a green and blue economy (UNSDCF Outcome B).

Being the first year of implementation of the new SN, the outcome was not fully achieved yet. However, significant progress was made towards its realization and, gender equality was mainstreamed across policies and programmes pertaining to women’s economic empowerment, climate change and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). Key achievements included: - The final draft of National Strategy for DRR 2023-2030 (pending approval) addresses the needs of women and girls. At local level, the Local Action Plan for Gender Equality (LAGP) 2023 - 2025 was approved in Durrës and includes, for the first time, a gender sensitive approach in regard to DRR related measures. UN Women contributed to these results by sharing official recommendations with the Ministry of Health and Social Protection to address the needs of marginalized and vulnerable groups, including those living in three municipalities worst affected by the 2019 earthquake. These inputs were instrumental to ensure that gender equality considerations were reflected in the final draft strategy. UN Women also supported the municipality through technical assistance and capacity building. - The new National Strategy on Agriculture and Fisheries 2021-2027 includes specific measures and objectives pertaining to gender equality and rural women’s empowerment. UN Women provided detailed recommendations to the draft strategy and engaged with key actors such as GIZ and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development during the drafting process, which was critical to ensure the inclusion of rural women’s needs and priorities in the final approved strategy. - Empowerment through Self-Defense (ESD) is now part of the National Strategy for Youth (2022-2029) , and it is incorporated in the extra-curricular programs of Albanian public schools. It will be rolled out in the first 60 public schools from January 2023 on. ESD is an innovative approach which aims to promote behavioral changes in communities, particularly in relation to issues such as gender-based violence, by fostering skills that enable emotional, psychological and physical safety of young women and men. In 2022, more than 700 youth learned about ESD, acquiring self-empowerment skills through dedicated sessions with their communities, while thousands of women and girls accessed this information via online communication channels. UN Women played a key role in advocating for the inclusion of this approach in the national strategy, through continuous lobbying and advocacy efforts at highest level in the Ministry of Education and Sport. - 760 women and activists were engaged and addressed their priorities in processes related to developing local budget plans. Their inputs focused on eight categories : Education, Social services, Social revitalization/post Covid-19, Health services, Housing, Mobility/Access, Public services, and Employment. 12 targeted municipalities received direct feedback in regard to women’s priorities in the Mid-Term Budget Plan (MTBP) 2022-2024, alongside with know-how, methodology, templates, data collection and analysis provided by UN Women and its civil society partners. This enabled municipalities to improve planning and organizing participatory budgeting at local level with special focus on gender responsive indicators and social services. All 12 municipalities carried out consultations with women, and moving forward. The municipalities of Tirana, Durres, Kavaja and Lezha (about 50% of the total Albanian population) will systematically engage women in future processes. Partnership with the members of the PRISMA network, formed by UN Women and comprising of 50 NGOs and local partners with expertise on participatory budgeting, will be essential for ensuring adequate follow up to these commitments. - 150 vulnerable women in 11 worst-affected municipalities by the 2019 earthquake are economically empowered, as part of seven interventions implemented in six municipalities, in four identified value chains, namely: Medicinal and Aromatic Plants, Traditional Food Value Chains and Handicrafts. These interventions used evidence and data on women’s economic empowerment made publicly available through the Gender Sensitive Value Chain Analysis (GSVCA) in 10 municipalities, developed by UN Women. Proactive engagement of non-traditional partners such as the private sector was critical for these results. - Women living in earthquake damaged areas are better able to enjoy their property rights in the reconstruction process. At least 252 women are now able to prepare better for legal procedures thanks to legal expertise provided by UN Women and its CSO partner, the Centre for Legal and Civic Initiatives (CLCI). 10 cases were filed and presented to CLCI’s lawyers to support women’s access to free legal aid. UN Women contributed to these results by sharing knowledge and building capacities of 128 state officials, professionals (e.g. notaries) and Local Government Units (LGUs) representatives, who are now better equipped to address women property rights in the reconstruction process, and by working closely with its CSO partner to build women's capacities. The generous support of the Government of Sweden and the Government of Italy through the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS Tirana) were essential to achieve these results. Key partners in this outcome include FAO, GIZ, the private sector, relevant municipalities and numerous CSOs that are engaged as Responsible Parties. The Theory of Change underpinning this outcome remains valid and more progress is expected in 2023, including the formation of Local Action Groups for rural women, and gender mainstream of rural and agricultural statistics and data collection, production and use in the context of the national Census which will be launched in 2023.
