The EU Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid – ECHO, on December 7, launched the EU Civil Protection Knowledge Network.
This new platform helps disaster management professionals across Europe to connect and share best practices.
The objective is to enhance the EU’s ability to better deal with disasters by sharing knowledge.
On this occasion, Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarčič said: “To face current and future crises we need to become better in involving experts, policy makers and researchers in our prevention, preparedness and response actions. With the EU Civil Protection Knowledge Network in place, the EU will be better informed and prepared for such shocks. Scientific insights, innovation and operational expertise make a real difference to save people’s lives when shared across borders and among disaster management practitioners.”
This Network brings together civil protection and disaster management experts and facilitates the exchange of scientific insights, best practices and lessons learned.
Be-Ready team is working on our contribution for the platform.
