UNISDR and WMO started in May 2012 the joint implementation of the project 'Building resilience to disasters in the Western Balkans and Turkey'. The project is supported by the European Commission DG Enlargement through the Instrument for Pre-Accession (IPA). The beneficiaries are Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo (under UNSCR 1244) and Turkey. The project has a duration of 24 months and will end in May 2014. The overall objective of the Action is to strengthen the resilience of the IPA beneficiaries to disasters.
As a part of the project activities, WMO will organize a regional training on NMHS’s Quality Management System (QMS) in providing services in support of DRR. The training will introduce the quality management concept and principles in relation to the NMHS’s activities in support of DRR. It will provide practical guidance on the implementation of QMS as a practice and organizational culture that is necessary for the sustainable provision of high quality service to the DRM agencies and other DRR stakeholders.
