PROJECT «NET-CBRN-REACT»:

Title: "Developing Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network partnership among EU, European Neighbourhood Policy countries and international organisations".

Duration of the project: 18 months

UN and International Dimension:

The project provides for a broad geographical focus and audience. A broad geographic focus is secured by bringing partners from EU, Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and relevant international organisations. Since the project delves common training and exercise templates in CBRN prevention, preparedness and response, interaction between countries, the EU and international organizations, will be secured. Participation of international organisations, including UN OCHA, OPCW, as partners, and CBSS as Member, will ensure that countries around the world would get access to the project results and will benefit from the project. Since CBRN emergencies, natural disasters and climate change, do not recognize borders, the project get support, engage and address local, national, regional and global stakeholders, including UN, OPCW, and other international agencies.
  • UN OCHA – coordination of effective and principled humanitarian action;
  • OPCW – alleged use of chemical weapons and international assistance in case of use of chemical weapons;
The project will contribute to the implementation of the UN Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction by providing a better understanding of disaster risks in regions of Eastern Europe and the Middle East. It will contribute to a disaster risk informed approach to EU emergency management and other relevant policies.

ABOUT NET-CBRN-REACT:

NET-CBRN-REACT project, funded by the European Union, to be implemented in 2021 - 2022, aims for better and more prompt disaster risk management in Eastern Europe and the Middle East through strengthening effectiveness and efficiency of collective civil protection and disaster management efforts. Since we witness constantly evolving nature of risks and hazards and the varying levels of impact they have on different segments of the population, infrastructure and the environment, the project covers relevant horizontal issues which include environmental sustainability, green economic practices, climate change and an increase of resilience in infrastructure.

What IS NET-CBRN-REACT about:

The project offers broad and inclusive disaster risk management to meet emergencies occurring inside and/or outside the EU through stronger prevention, preparedness and response activities, with use of UCPM. By combing experience and best practices from EU and non-EU partners, and developing cooperation networks, project provides for enhanced cooperation and improved coordination among a wide range of stakeholders across countries, within UCPM. The project horizontal approach broadens the traditional civil protection towards public security, protection of environment and public and private infrastructure, marine pollution, health emergencies, as well as cultural heritage against disaster risks and natural and manmade hazards. This broad and inclusive disaster risk management becomes a continues task to be performed on daily basis, not in case of emergency, and will remain high on local, national and international agenda. The partners will analyse and research on current training and exercise activities and procedures already in place to enhance UCPM use in CBRN context. They will make a compilation of civil protection knowledge, expertise and methodologies based on specific disaster risk scenarios common in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

Project Objectives

Conducted within the project research and feasibility assessments of common good practices in preparedness and response to CBRN emergencies will result in new training and exercise opportunities within Knowledge Network. Networking opportunities, through on-line network of expert, as a final outcome, will enhance use of UCPM and EU tools and engage partners from outside EU. Project provides for 2 international workshops, in Lviv, Ukraine, and in Minsk, Belarus, to improve response capacity of participating countries to use UCPM and EU tools, and enhance cooperation in disaster response among civil protection, disaster management, marine pollution, humanitarian actors and international organisations.

Project key activities and timelines

Analysis and research on current training and exercise activities and procedures, based on the risks common in Easter Europe and the Middle East Compilation of civil protection knowledge, expertise and methodologies based on specific disaster risk scenarios common in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Workshop on the development of scenario-based approaches in trainings and exercises within UCPM; November, 2021 - Lviv, Ukraine Workshop on testing and applying scenario-based approaches in trainings and exercises within UCPM, May, 2022 – Minsk/Borisov, Belarus; Development of on-line experts support network for UCPM scenario-based trainings and exercises in CBRN preparedness and response outside EU.

Project Deliverables

Conducted within the project research and feasibility assessments of common good practices in preparedness and response to CBRN emergencies will result in new training and exercise opportunities and an on-line network of experts, to enhance Knowledge Network. 2 international workshops, in Lviv, Ukraine, and in Minsk, Belarus, will enhance cooperation in disaster response among civil protection, disaster management, marine pollution, humanitarian actors and international organisations.

Expected Outcomes

Core project outcomes include sharing the expertise in civil protection and risk disaster management among EU and non-EU members. Conducted within the project research and feasibility assessments of common good practices in preparedness and response to CBRN emergencies will result in new training and exercise opportunities within Knowledge Network. Networking opportunities, through on-line network of expert, as a final outcome, will enhance use of UCPM and EU tools and engage partners from outside EU to develop Knowledge Network. The project outputs include the compilation of common good practices in prevention, preparedness and response by all relevant organisations as a working tool, the compilation of training and exercises courses templates by participating partners as a working tool, on-line experts support network for UCPM training and exercises in CBRN preparedness and response outside EU. Assistance and civil protection experts database will be developed and maintained as on-line experts support network for UCPM training and exercises in CBRN preparedness and response outside EU. This on-line network will contain offers for training and exercises on UCPM use. Project results will improve response capacity of participating countries to use UCPM and EU tools. Cooperation in disaster response among civil protection, disaster management, marine pollution, humanitarian actors and international organisations will be improved. Network of relevant civil protection and other disaster management actors will be established, involving also climate change adaptation practitioners. CBRN expertise will be further developed and lessons will be identified and shared.
