Impacts of the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline on the land and livelihoods of farmers in Albania
In May 2017, Bankwatch, together with the Albanian Helsinki Committee undertook a mission along the corridor of the Trans-Adriatic Pipeline in Albania to talk to people affected by the project. Apart from highly insufficient levels of compensation, the grievances we’ve learned about ranged from a non-transparent compensation process and lack of legal and administrative assistance to intimidation and dubious irregularities in the land certification process where the company has been involved.
This report outlines each of these points in more detail and includes examples.
