American Bar Association`s Center for Human Rights, has published the report “Communities under Pressure – Findings from Valbona, Albania”, as a part of the panel “The Human Cost of Hydro-power”.

As described in the report, the construction process of HPPs have impacted people’s livelihoods, their safety and security. In recent years, there has been increased recognition of threats and intimidation of human rights defenders worldwide, so the ABA Center for Human Rights calls on the Albanian Government to investigate the reported incidents against activists and community members in Valbona and to hold accountable those responsible. The government also has an obligation to protect the human rights defenders and community members who are threatened and attacked as a result of their activism.
