Work packages

For strengthening capabilities for prevention, preparedness and response and achieving the specific objectives the consortium have defined a number of work packages that they are each responsible for. The work packages can contribute to more than one specific objective.

Work Package A (MSB): Capacity Development

WP A will support all the other work packages in creating conducive environment for the successful realisations of the programme across all its thematic areas. This WP will inform the programme implementation through rigorous assessment exercises planned at the beginning, half-way through, and at the end of the its implementation. The mainstreaming of gender, human rights and environment in programme activities is also part of the capacity development approach under WP A.

Work Package B (ESAF): Knowledge Transfer

WP B will contribute to the enhancement of knowledge transfer two-sidedly between the EU and Eastern Neighbourhood Partner Countries and among the Eastern Neighbourhood Partner Countries.

Work Package C (CRI): Emergency Preparedness

WP C will strengthen Emergency Preparedness capabilities in the Eastern Neighbourhood Partner Countries with specific focus on strengthening response planning processes.

Work Package D (MSB): Civil Protection Agency Development

WP D will be exclusively focused on responding to the needs of each civil protection authority in the Eastern Neighbourhood Partner Countries to develop their strategic and operational capabilities. Specifically, the focus is on strengthening (a) 24/7 operational centres in the partner countries; (b) public awareness efforts, and (c) inter-institutional coordination to create synergies with the relevant on-going initiatives in the region and explore joint events, if justified

Work Package E (CRI): All of Society-inclusive Civil Protection Development

WP E will enrich and broaden the engagement of civil society and academia in disaster prevention, preparedness and response in the Eastern Neighbourhood Partner Countries.

Work Package F (SKR MV): Regional Cooperation

WP F will be primarily focused of cooperation and exchange of good practices, as well as mutual support among Eastern Neighbourhood Partner Countries and between and the Member States/Participating States of the Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM).

Work Package G (CIMA): Early Warning Systems

WP G will support National Civil Protection Agencies and stakeholders to strengthen and, where necessary, develop the basis for modern and functional Early Warning Systems (EWS).

Work Package H (CIMA): Risk Management Capabilities

WP H will aim at developing stronger national analytical capabilities for national multi-risk assessments and further strengthening the national capabilities for disaster loss assessment.


The exhibit below provides a visual illustration of the programme’s implementation model with the focus to the time horizon until 2022 when the mid-term assessment of the programme results is envisaged. After the mid-term review, the programme implementation model will be updated.
