Flood and earthquake simulation exercise for Egyptian, Jordanian and Palestinian civil protection officers
May 11, 2016
Egyptians, Jordanians and Palestinians officers from risk management structures will attend a simulation exercise on flood and earthquake at the Euro-Mediterranean Centre of Risk Simulation (Centre Euro-Méditerranéen de Simulation de Risques – CESIR) in Valabre, France from 17 to 20 May 2016, in the framework of the EU-funded PPRD SOUTH II (Prevention, Preparedness, and Response to natural and man-made Disasters) programme.
The objective of this workshop is to prepare the participants for the management of operational responses to major natural disasters. Participants will assess a crisis, share relevant information, manage and process information, organise on-site rescue, coordinate implemented resources, organize the return to normal situation.
PPRD South II (Prevention, Preparedness, and Response to natural and man-made Disasters) is a three-year programme with a €5 million budget which aims at raising national resilience of southern Mediterranean partner countries (targeted by the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP)) affected by a natural or man-made disaster, mainly through risk reduction (prevention, mitigation, public awareness) and preparedness (capacity building, contingency planning), including better cooperation at the international level.
