National Strategies for alerting authorities and population concerning natural and technological risks in Balkan countries

Project background

The project aims to develop a sustainable national policy and a stable legal and institutional framework for reducing risk disasters, but also, to strengthen the institutional capacity for identifying and implementing actions to reduce risk disaster in all critical sectors.

Most significant achievements

The European Centre for Risk Prevention - Bulgaria :
A brief analyse of the situation in Balkan countries shows that in 2014 three countries (Serbia, “the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia” and Bulgaria) had a National strategy based on the UN Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015: Building the Resilience of Nations and Communities to Disasters. It is not the case for all countries in the Balkan region. Therefore it is of great importance to collect different types of National Strategies in order to elaborate a final document and to distribute it to Balkan countries.
