The Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM) is intended to support and complement Member States' action at national, regional and local level in risk prevention, in preparedness and in responding to natural or man-made disasters. When disasters strike a country, within the European Union or outside, the Mechanism allows for the necessary operational resources to be mobilised to assist and provide a prompt response. In this context each year DG ECHO publishes 2 calls for proposals to fund activities aimed at closer cooperation in prevention, preparedness and awareness-raising in civil protection and marine pollution: Prevention and preparedness in civil protection and marine pollution (2017 budget 8.6 million EUR) and Union Civil Protection Mechanism Exercises (2017 budget 4.9 million EUR).
