Cooperation projects on preparedness and prevention

The 2009 call for proposals for cooperation projects on prevention and preparedness in the field of civil protection covers TWO separate sections, each with its own objectives and specific budget:

(A) Prevention projects
and
(B) Preparedness projects

Objectives of prevention projects

No specific objective or target group is set for prevention projects. However, the general requirement for eligible projects is to contribute to the development of a knowledge–based disaster prevention policies approach on prevention. Prevent and mitigate long term damage by improving risk assessment and management. Ideally, consistency should be promoted in the 'response-preparedness-prevention-remediation' chain, by matching general policy and civil protection requirements.

Objectives of preparedness projects

  1. Exchange of information, experience, good practices and knowledge aiming at increasing the performance of civil protection actors (professional and volunteers) operating in the Member States as well as increasing public awareness.
  2. Cross border civil protection cooperation regarding the direct response to natural and man-made disasters
  3. Enhancement of the availability of Civil Protection modules and other resources

Important notice

Please note that the published grant application guide for the 2009 call for proposals for cooperation projects on prevention and preparedness contains a typing error regarding the minimum number of Member States for preparedness projects objective 1.

Whilst on page 7 of the grant application guide specifies that "projects must be designed and implemented by transnational partnerships involving entities from at least three Member States", page 8 for the same objective reads "that projects must be designed and implemented by transnational partnerships involving at least three mutually independent legal entities established in two different Member States".

Please note that for preparedness projects objective 1, the correct number of Member States is three. Projects must be designed and implemented by transnational partnerships involving entities from at least three Member States.
