This publication is the second from Statistics Norway with documents on the project to assist in the modernisation of the civil status registers in Albania. The purpose is to gather experience and documentation produced by the project, in an easily accessible manner, for remaining work in the project, for the Government of Albania and for the international donor community during future efforts in this comprehensive and important field.
The Norwegian technical assistance project entitled, “Modernisation of the Civil Registration System in Albania” was launched further to a decision of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to fund the project. The Project’s implementation has lasted now for 5 years and is likely to continue for another year or longer. Earlier this year the Ministry of Foreign Affairs requested that a team consisting of two experts conduct an independent evaluation of the Project. Statistics Norway approached the authors of this report with the offer to conduct the evaluation. They accepted the offer and carried out the evaluation between 17 and 28 October 2005, first during a two-day visit to Oslo and subsequently during a 10-day stay in Tirana.
This report contains the findings and recommendations of the evaluation team. The report has been prepared in line with the Terms of Reference (Appendix 1) drafted by the relevant Norwegian authorities. In addition to evaluating the Norwegian Project the report addresses a draft proposal of the Government of Albania on the modernization of the civil status service. The Government, which came to office following the July 2005 parliamentary elections, circulated this brand new proposal at the time of the visit of the evaluation team to Tirana.
The report was prepared in 2006.
