Project background

Natural and technological disasters cause great human and economic losses and we cannot prevent many of them (especially those natural) but there are ways to minimize the risk of disaster, in particular by distributing to all countries the best international experience on Emergency Management.

The main aim of the BeSafeNet initiative is to better protect people from hazards through an improved information process on the nature, causes and consequences of natural and technological hazards. A wide distribution of such knowledge will help people to better understand the potential risks and consequently to better protect themselves against them.

The BeSafeNet initiative represents an opportunity for networking to provide e-learning material on natural and technological hazards and related risks.
