The Vjosa River in Albania is one of the last wild rivers in Europe. In its course of over 270 km, the Vjosa flows naturally undisturbed, characterized by beautiful canyons, rapids, islands and bends that create wonderful meanders. The construction of HPPs is the current biggest threat in this area. A total of 38 HPPs are planned in the Vjosa catchment. In Albania, 8 dams are planned in the main stream, while the other 23 HPPs are designed in its tributaries – 4 of which have already been completed, while another 4 are under construction. On the Greek side of the watershed, 6 new dams are planned, while there is only one existing one, the large HPP of Pigai.
