Project description Overall objective:

Risk management in order to reduce the consequences, intensity and frequency of natural disasters and major accidents and protect the population, the environment and property by exchanging best practice that promotes a common understanding of cross-border cooperation on the harmonization of methodologies, guidelines and risk assessment reinforced by the inclusion of newly developed IT tools to help manage crises.

Expected results:

The expected outcome of the project is an IT tool to improve the linkage and cooperation between relevant stakeholders and policies throughout the complete disaster management cycle (prevention-preparedness-response-recovery). Reports and analyses obtained and lessons learned during the project with the application of the integrated IT tool in real life in the transnational environment will provide invaluable grounds for various scenarios where the same results could be easily reproduced and/or transferred to other countries, regions or organizations. Enhancement of cooperation, exchange of good practices and support for capacity building in prevention actions outlined in Chapter 2 of the Decision No. 1313/2013/EU (including risk assessment, risk management planning, risk prevention measures) are an integral part of the project in such a way that the system will contain combined data about the civil protection capabilities of the regions in three different states, so as to improve the response effectiveness to major emergencies and enhance the prevention and preparedness measures for all kinds of emergencies, including the continuation of measures taken previously in compliance with the Council Decision 1999/847/EC.
