Visit to Azerbaijan

27-29 April, our Team Leader Peter Glerum travelled to Azerbaijan to visit our partner at the Ministry of Emergency and other important stakeholders. The purpose was to establish good relations for our future collaboration and to focus on practical possibilities for support from our side, based on the analysis of the current situation. “My overall view is that Azerbaijan has a huge capacity and a good staffing in the domain of emergency management. I was happy to receive confirmation of their full cooperation with the programme and the willingess to work together”, Peter says after his visit.

During the stay, he visited the Command Centre, which is part of the operations department, where 24/7 operational monitoring of the country takes place. Within the framework of PPRD East, there will be focus on Early Warning Systems in 24/7 Centres and through interagency cooperation.

He also visited the academy of the ministry of Emergency situations, which is a facility where more than 100 students are educated on bachelor and master level each year. They also run courses, as well as organize seminars for MES and other institutions. The premises of the academy are excellent for programme activities and it was agreed to have one of the UCPM basis courses and the Table Top Exercise at the training grounds.

The visit also included meetings with the Institute of Seismology, the Institute for Geography, the Institute for hydrometeorology of the ministry of environment and ecology, the Red Crescent society of Azerbaijan and the EU Delegation.
