Videos about the programme

Collage with photos from the full scale exercise

The PPRD East 3 programme aims to increase the resilience to disasters in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine. The programme supports to establish an early warning early action-based civil protection approach.
This approach was practiced during a full-scale exercise on forest fires in Tbilisi, Georgia in May and June 2023, aiming to strengthen inter-institutional and regional coordination. Forest fire is a prominent risk in all partner countries and we are stronger together.

In this video, PPRD East 3 Team Leader Peter Glerum is explaining the overall programme objectives. We have chosen to focus on forest fire risks as it is a prominent risk in all partner countries. We focus on supporting the change from a response based approach to disaster management in an early warning, early action based multi-stakeholder approach. Integration of gender, human rights and environmental perspectives is key in the programme implementation.


We are testing the capacities of civil protection systems, learning from the past and preparing for future events.

Follow the link to watch how we have adapted the method for Table top Exercises in order to fulfill our commitment to the programme, despite of COVID-19 restrictions.

Practical Guidelines for integrating gender, human rights and environmental issues in Disaster Risk Management

Practical Guidelines for integrating gender, human rights and environmental issues in Disaster Risk Management

The Guidelines build upon global standards and best practices and present practical advice on how to integrate gender, human rights and environment into nine thematic areas of the programme. Examples of thematic areas include, training and exercises, Multi-Risk Assessments, Early Warning Systems, Public awareness, volunteerism and Host Nation Support. The document has been produced in collaboration with the PPRD East 3 programme experts and partner countries’ organisations to enhance the quality and relevance of the guidance. The Guidelines was produced as an interactive online resource and is available in English and Russian.
