News New Civil Protection programme for the Mediterranean: €5 million to better face disasters

he European Commission has published a contract forecast notice for the second phase of the Euromed programme for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to natural and man-made Disasters (PPRD) South with a budget of €5 million. The reference is EuropeAid/133524/C/SER/Multi. 

The overall objective of this technical assistance contract is to reduce the vulnerability to, and the social, economic and environmental costs of, natural and man-made disasters in the ENP South region, thereby enhancing regional and national sustainable development and climate adaptation. Building on the 'acquis' and lessons learned from ongoing and previous programmes, the purpose of this project is to: 

-     reinforce institutional cooperation between the EU civil protection mechanism and the ENP South partner countries' civil protection systems,
-     encourage inter-regional coordination and cooperation in order to have coordinated responses of partner countries affected by the same disaster, and
-     stimulate the development of a regional approach to disaster management based on prevention and preparedness rather than on response, with the involvement of governmental actors as well as of civil society stakeholders. 

It will follow up on the achievements of the current phase of PPRD South.

Deadline for receipt of applications: 31 January 2013 (16:00), Central European Time
