The main aim of this paper is to present the spread of geomorphologic risks in Albania, causes of origins and their development, the consequences in the natural environment and human economic activity. These risks are caused as a result of natural factors and social ones. The over controlled human activity on the environment stimulate the intensity of the action of geomorphologic processes. Through this paper is presented an overall assessment of natural hazards and human intervention with high intensity in the natural environment. As a result, it is important to have complex studies to analyze natural and human factors over environment. Further, this paper presents the types of geomorphologic risks in Albania, geographical coverage, favorable factors, the evolution and consequences in the natural environment and social-economic activity. A detailed analysis is made of erosion as the main form of land degradation. Albania is among the Mediterranean countries characterized by high levels of erosion. As a result, it is necessary to take protective measures for a good environmental management. Refers to the principle, it is easier to prevent “risks” rather than cure "scars", which often turn into "chronic", through this paper are presented the measures and recommendations that aim to prevent these risks in origin.
