With the publication of the 'Guidelines for PPRD South technical assistance', the PPRD South Programme invited the Partner Countries to consider the possibility of requesting technical assistance support from the PPRD South Programme in view to fulfill the national capacity development priorities in the field of disaster prevention, preparedness and response.
Through the initial PPRD South questionnaire based survey, the civil protection authorities of the PPRD South Partner Countries highlighted a strong interest in the institutional, regulatory and organizational frameworks for civil protection of the EU Member States and of the other PPRD South Partner Countries. On this basis, tools and methodologies which proved effective in the prevention, preparedness and response to disasters are being widely illustrated and promoted during the PPRD South workshops. The PPRD South technical assistance is there to support the possible extension or replication of those experiences, tools and methods in the interested PPRD South Partner Countries.
Following a request for technical assistance support received from a National Correspondent of a PPRD South Partner Country, the Programme may organize targeted technical assistance missions or exchanges of experts aimed at enhancing the quality of Civil Protection services in the Country.
The Guidelines, including the detailed terms and conditions for requesting and implementing the PPRD South technical assistance missions, are available for download.
