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 overall objective of the Action is to strengthen the resilience of the IPA beneficiaries to disasters.
As a part of the project activities, WMO is organizing a training workshop on Flood Loss Assessment in the Framework of Integrated Flood Management. The objective of the workshop is to provide training on the use of flood losses assessment tool including the assessment of the extent of flooding, flood losses and resultant needs of the affected communities, which is essential for the flood relief coordination and often has to be carried out during the event itself under the extraordinary circumstances, involving varying degrees of chaotic conditions, contingencies and time pressure.
