EU-funded Flagship Initiative increasing disaster risk management capacities in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.

The PPRD East 2 experts have developed a new document – “Recommendations  on the evaluation of the economic value of Civil Protection  Volunteerism” – to facilitate and support the Partner Countries in the  development of their national institutional and legal frameworks for  volunteerism in the CP area, particularly to enable them to calculate  the economic value of use of volunteers in CP area.

This document provides the Partner Countries with a brief overview of  exiting studies and tools that are most suitable and applicable for  developing their own national systems for calculation of the economic  value of CP volunteerism, thus to be able to compare in economic terms  use of volunteers versus professionals in CP activities.
