    Albania is a small, mountainous country located in south-eastern Europe facing the Adriatic Sea, with an exceptionally rich biodiversity. Most of the population lives in rural areas, where agriculture represents the main income source and poverty is much higher than in the capital city, Tirana. The steep topography makes the country more vulnerable to extreme climate-related events and land degradation. Soil loss via water erosion in Albania is higher than in most countries of the region and has had a significant negative effect on the carrying capacity of pastures and agricultural yields.

    The Republic of Serbia is a landlocked country in south-eastern Europe, in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula. With fertile soils, good climatic conditions and a rich farming tradition, agriculture is one of the most important sectors of the country’s economy. However, the productive capacity of Serbian soils is decreasing due to salinization, acidification, erosion and compaction. Serbia is facing more frequent extreme climate and weather episodes, such as draughts and floods that cause significant economic losses and exacerbate land degradation. A significant increase of temperature is observed in the country, and a National Drought Plan was recently developed.

    LDN in the Republic of Moldova

    The Republic of Moldova is a small-sized country located in the South-Eastern part of Europe, with a temperate continental climate and highly productive black soils. Agricultural activities cover more than 75 percent of the country and land fragmentation is one of the major constraints for the implementation of sustainable and climate smart agricultural practices. Drought and soil loss due to extensive landslides, wind erosion and degradation of fertility threaten soil productivity, as well as agricultural economy and the livelihood of the rural population in the Republic of Moldova. Water resources for agriculture are scarce, and irrigation infrastructure is scarce among small-scale farmers.
