Project summary:

The project aims at exchange of experience, know-how and good practices in the field of risk assessment and risk analysis in the cross-border region.

The project activities include the creation of a working group in Burgas consisting of experts who will investigate the disasters – manmade and natural happened during the last 5 years and will assess the current risk areas.  The collected and processed data would be served for preparation of a disaster “risk map” in the Bulgarian-Turkish cross-border region.

A "round table" event will be organized in Edirne under the motto "Management of risk prevention – a key for sustainable development of the cross-border region". Here will be announced and discussed the risk assessment results for the main risky zones incl. Environmental, Biological, Health, Technological, Natural risk and  the prevention of natural and man-made disasters.

It is envisaged “risk information tools” to be developed”, including risk maps and mobile application.

Training in Edirne will be conducted for the representatives of agriculture, business, administration and civil society on risk management and disaster protection.

On behalf of the Bulgarian partner a " Virtual Risk HUB " will be created, which will play a role of a platform functioning as common one for business, education, research, government and stakeholders to meet, collaborate, exchange information and good practices at the risk prevention management.

As a result of the implementation of the project one general guide and a book will be issued. The materials will help to improve the joint actions co-ordination in emergency situations, which ensures increased protection and security for the residents of the cross-border region.
