Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural and Man-made Disasters in the Eastern Partnership Countries

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

Disaster Risk Assessment is a key element of decision and policy-making process. Rather than an activity, it can be viewed as a multi-disciplinary process, allowing for the identification, quantification and understanding of the extent and impacts of the risks a community is facing. It can be performed at different level (from local to national and regional), in a multi-purpose framework (urban planning, spatial planning, emergency planning, etc.) and by a single or multi-risk approach.
