Regional Strategies for Disaster Prevention (2010-2012)

Over the last few years, many regions in Europe have suffered from natural and man-made disasters such as forest fires, floods and droughts. Their devastating effects on citizens’ lives, environment and economy have led European, national and regional authorities dealing with Civil Protection to strongly focus on response and recovery measures. However, there is also a need for more actions and efforts on disaster prevention strategies.

The CivPro project, which brought together 12 partners from 11 EU countries, was designed to respond to this need. The overall objective was twofold. First, it aimed to improve the coordination and effectiveness of regional policies in preventing disasters and mitigating their consequences. Second, the partnership wished to further develop instruments and establish modalities to strengthen the link between disaster prevention and crisis management.

The partnership was exchanging experiences, know-how and good practices on risk mapping, early warning systems, risk screening models and awareness-raising policies. Partners were also working on the development of a strategic approach to prevent and reduce any potential threat and damages resulting from natural calamities and man-made disasters. Overall policy recommendations and tailor-made local/regional Disaster Prevention Policy Plans developed on the basis of a pre-defined model tested at regional level were the final aim and challenge of the CivPro cooperation.
