A monitoring meeting within the EMBER project

The “Ever-moving border emergency response – EMBER“ project, of the total value of EUR 1,028,169, is one of the successfully contracted projects under the IPA Cross-border Cooperation Programme Croatia-Serbia, and is focused on enhancing the level of regional cooperation through a joint system and approach in response to flooding in the Sava river basin in the cross-border region. The EMBER project has resulted from the cooperation between the institutions of the AP Vojvodina and Vukovar-Srijem County, and foresees the procurement of equipment, joint field exercises of the Serbian and Croatian civil protection units, as well as the preparation of emergency response plans.

On 16.8.2017 a monitoring meeting was held at the Provincial Government to submit a report to the representatives of the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia on the implementation of the EMBER project and project results. The meeting was attended by the representatives of all partner institutions from the Republic of Serbia who have actively participated in the project implementation – the Secretariat of the Provincial Government as the Lead Beneficiary, and the European Affairs Fund of Autonomous Province of Vojvodina and the Provincial Secretariat for Economy and Tourism as project partners.

The project implementation so far has been assessed positively and is going in accordance with the procedures and deadlines envisaged. The meeting was successfully completed by visiting the warehouse of the PWCM “Vode Vojvodine” Novi Sad, which is an associated project partner, and where the equipment procured in the project is currently being stored.
