Disaster Preparedness and Prevention (DPP): State of play and strategic orientations for EC policy


The objective of the present paper is to take stock of the state of play at EC level and to present the outline for an EC strategy on disaster preparedness and prevention. It is written from the perspective and experience of ECHO but should be open for amendments and proposals from other Commission services, aiming at a truly common and coherent approach on an issue that has been addressed so far in a piecemeal and ad-hoc fashion.
