Disaster Risk Reduction


PPRD East Disaster Risk Reduction Workshops were planned to improve capabilities and approaches of Partner Countries related to disaster prevention and DRR. The aim of the events was to share European and global disaster risk reduction expertise and experience, and to boost the cooperation in disaster risk management between the PPRD East Programme Partner Countries and the EU.


In close cooperation with the DG ECHO, and based on preliminary consultations undertaken with the UNISDR Regional Office for Europe, the Draft Agenda has been developed and trainers/lecturers for the first Sub-regional Disaster Risk Reduction Workshop have been selected.


The first Sub-regional DRR workshop took place on November 5-7, 2103 in Armenia with the participation of the representatives from Armenia, Belarus and Moldova.


The second DRR sub-regional workshop for the representatives of Azerbaijan, Georgia and Ukraine was held on February 2014 in Georgia.
