56 713 433 euro for disaster prevention

About 56 713 433 euro for prevention, preparedness, risk assessment in a disaster is planning to invest the Union Civil Protection Mechanism in diverse projects through five new calls for proposals. Projects shall focus on national preparedness and cross-border and multi-country initiatives, including knowledge, risk analyses, modules, tabletop exercise, multi-hazards scenario preparedness, and large scale exercises in the European Members States and neighbouring countries part of the UCPM. The Information Day promoted the launch of the financial schemes at the online event on 25th March 2021. The DG ECHO team familiarised the potential applicants with the „Prevention and Preparedness Projects“ and „Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network“, giving some useful guidance on the preparation of applications. Almost 250 persons attended the event. The proposal can be submitted in early June. The 2021 Call for Proposals will be published at the following address: https://ec.europa.eu/echo/funding-evaluations/financing-civil-protection/calls-for-proposal_en
