Dear partners, colleagues and friends,

Welcome to the 30th edition of our Delivering for Development newsletter. We're thrilled to show you the actions carried out by UN entities in Albania over the last few months.

March was dedicated to gender equality and social cohesion, and our actions are focused to ending violence against women and promoting women's empowerment. Check out our latest updates on the events that took place around International Women's Day, including a video of women ambassadors in Albania advocating for the power of the vote to empower women.

This issue covers a range of areas where we're striving to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals in the run-up to the global SDG summit, including our work to tackle climate change and protect the environment, promote productive and inclusive economic development, remove barriers and create opportunities for those at risk of exclusion, and ensure good governance, the rule of law, and human rights. You won't want to miss our exciting pieces on sustainable agriculture, preserving cultural heritage, and much more.

We hope you enjoy reading this newsletter and are inspired by our efforts to make a real difference.

We wish you a pleasant read,

Fiona McCluney
Resident Coordinator
United Nations Albania
