This newsletter of the Association of Municipalities of Albania reflects the main activities during the period May – December 2020. The COVID 19 pandemic made 2020 a very challenging year for Albania the whole society, as in the rest of the globe. Most efforts and energy were put into relieving the consequences and preventing further losses. Most activities reported in this newsletter were carried out under conditions of social distancing. For the rest of the period, efforts have been made to implement projects with the involvement of municipalities at the local level. The association has closely followed developments in law enforcement and legal changes regarding local autonomy.
