PROGRAMME PHASES AND MILESTONES
Disaster loss data, risk assessment and risk mapping are the main components of the Programme. Initially, pre-study and fact finding missions will be conducted to increase the understanding of the state of play in regards to these specific areas both at national and regional level. This will lay the foundation for the development of the country-specific plans of action. Capacity-building activities such as technical and regional workshops, advisory and technical missions and targeted actions for the installations of the Electronic Regional Risk Atlas (ERRA) will be used for the achievement of the Programme expected results. Programme deliverables and activities will be shared through online platforms, media and events.
In the first six months, the programme will carry out country visits to present the programme framework and ensure partner multi-stakeholder and inter-agency involvement. Further to that, a first round of fact-finding missions and a preliminary desk research assessments will serve as basis for a first study which will be shared among Programme partners and stakeholders.
Milestone 1: Fact-finding reports for all partner countries with main hazard types identified
Deliveries: Inception and Baseline Report
In this phase the Programme will develop the country-specific plans of actions which will include recommendations and operational indications.
Milestone 2: Plans of actions for all partner countries
Milestone 3: Set-Up of National indicators for disaster loss data collection in all partner countries
Milestone 4: Installation of ERRA and relevant training
The results of the programme will be collected and shared among the partner countries as well as with relevant EU-, regional and international organisations through online platforms and specific lessons learned sessions in the Programme main events. As a way forward, the country-specific plans of action will be reviewed and revised and a regional roadmap will be set up.
