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 training on Drought Hazard Analysis and Mapping. The aim of the training is to improve the knowledge and capacities of the participants in the field of drought monitoring and application of the remote sensing with the focus on the available EUMETSAT SAF products.
