Several consulting meetings were held during the report development phases at the Geographic Studies Center. These meetings were also attended by the coordinator of Vlora Regional Office and were mainly focused on human migration trends and changes in the environment utilization map. The objectives of all four working teams were successfully achieved thanks to the coordination with the regional office which leade the experts during the visits on site. Nevertheless some administrative units are not entirely subject of this study. They are generally included in it due to the particularity of the data processed by the administrative units and due to the large-scale of human impact consequences.
