Montenegro - Ready 2 Respond: emergency preparedness and response assessment - diagnostic report
This report includes the assessment of the EP and R capacities of Montenegro based on the R2R diagnostic methodology, as designed by the World Bank and executed by prepared international (PPI). The ready2respond (R2R) framework was developed in reference to the role of the World Bank in disaster risk reduction (DRR). While strengthening emergency preparedness and response (EP and R) is a sound investment on its own, it also supports the World Bank Group’s broader risk reduction efforts and its fundamental goal of eliminating poverty and shared prosperity.
Montenegro has received reasonable scores for the R2R diagnostic. Overall, the country is rather well prepared, although the EP&R system presents substantial disparities in its capacities. The lowest scores in the diagnostic are for the criteria on information management systems, financial preparedness, and training centers. Montenegro scores high in the criteria on emergency social services, information and communications technology, incident organization structures, and early warning systems. The R2R diagnostic helped identify several concrete key investment opportunities that are expected to improve the EP&R system overall.
