Multi-country Study on Main Risks and Capacities

to Respond to Risks in EU Neighborhood & IPA Beneficiaries

Overall objectives

It will provide evidence on where the main national, cross-border, regional risks, and gaps in addressing those risks are. The study will help define priorities for future actions/programmes and partnerships in the targeted regions and support overall external strategy of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism.

Specific objectives

To produce in-depth, country-specific risk management analysis covering all phases of disaster risk management and disaster risk reduction (identifying and mapping main risks, mapping of response capacities and identifying capacities gaps) in the area of civil protection with a cross-sectoral cooperation component, including detailed analysis of similar initiatives.
