Risk mapping: Jordan completes workshop series under EU civil protection project
December 3, 2015
More than 20 Jordanian officials from various ministries and institutions have completed a major risk mapping training with a series of 3 dedicated workshops, proposed and organised by the EU-funded PPRD SOUTH II (Prevention, Preparedness, and Response to natural and man-made Disasters) programme.
The aim of these workshops is to encourage and help the national authority to set up a risk assessment and risk management unit, in the framework of the Risk and Disaster Management (RDM) structure strengthening initiative in all partner countries.
The 3 training workshops gave participants the opportunity to acquire a risk assessment methodology and work on case studies. They also visited the National Centre for Security and Crisis Management.
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.
