This new publication of the Observatory of the Mediterranean Basin (OMB) tries to build on the previous investigations related to water issues, but shifting the focus from the Albanian Riviera to the river basin. The choice of title for this volume intends to convey importance to the idea of the river as a connection between land and sea. “When the river flows into the sea” offers a twofold reading: on one hand it confers relevance to a condition present in the Albanian territory which is still waiting for an intervention; on the other, it proposes a project for the future in terms of resource investment prevision, contributing to the preservation of the river. Continuing the tradition started three years ago, and thanks to the national and international contributions to each volume, our PhD publications have become a reference point for the research community, whereby the meaning of the project can be tested trough theory and practice.
