PPRD East II – Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural and Man-made Disasters in the Eastern Partnership Countries
The PPRD East Programme is the EU-funded Flagship Initiative for increasing disaster risk management capacities of Eastern Partnership societies and improving protection of populations from the negative consequences of natural and man-made disasters in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. The second phase of the programme is implemented in 2015-2019. It focuses on (1) approximation of the Partner Countries’ legal and institutional frameworks to EU legislation and good practices in the area of civil protection and disaster risk management, (2) strengthening civil protection capacities of Partner Countries through joint trainings and exercises, further development and putting in practical use the Electronic Regional Risk Atlas, and (3) raising awareness about disasters. The programme is funded by the European Commission (EuropeAid/135314/C/SER/MULTI).
EU Command Post 2019
The project is implemented in 2018 – 2019 by a Consortium led by the French Directorate General for Civil Protection and Crisis Management. The project refers to a table-top and command post exercises based on multi-scenarios that cover natural, technological and made man disasters. The consortium organises a table top and command post exercise in March 2019. The exercise aims at testing the national and European response capabilities in case of major destruction with the aspects of a major crisis requiring the deployment of civil protection modules simultaneously on several sites. Different scenarios will be played in virtual simulation using new technologies. The exercises will be organised in the premises of the Civil protection and Fire emergency services National training center (ENSOSP) in Aix en Provence. The project is co-financed by the European Commission Civil Protection Financial Instrument (785563-UCPM-2017-EX-AG).
