Albania's waste problems affecting tourism

Overdevelopment in Albania has led to waste issues.

Blendi Klosi, an MP from Albania's opposition Socialist party has recently stated that there is a lack of political strategy in his country for tourism development. These comments have come as a response to the waste problems affecting the coastline. There is a lack of waste processing plants in tourist zones, and heaps of waste frequently end up sitting by the roadside. Albania is the least developed country in Europe but has had to cope with overdevelopment along its coastlines. The lack of proper waste and waste water disposal facilties have led to uncontrolled dumping of waste.
