European Centre for Disaster Awareness


BeSafeNet is a tool for promoting risk culture among populations.
Natural and technological disasters cause great human and economic losses. We cannot prevent many of them but there is a way to minimise the risk of disaster by sharing internationally valid and reliable information on the nature, causes and consequences of natural and technological disasters. A wide distribution of such information will help people better understand the potential risks and consequently better protect themselves against disasters.

Our desire to present common material based on sound international experience requires a pre-existing international network of expertise in the field of major natural and technological hazards and related disasters.
The coordination of the Initiative on website development and its day-by-day operation is carried out by Cyprus Civil Defence.
