ECHO Call “Prevention & Preparedness” 2016
Crisis Management

The European Commission’s Directorate for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection has launched a call for proposals for prevention and preparedness projects. The purpose is to support actions of participating states and eligible third countries in prevention, preparedness and awareness-raising in civil protection and marine pollution.

The framework is the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, established in 2001 with the idea of fostering cooperation among national civil protection authorities across Europe. Nowadays, the Mechanism includes all 28 EU Member States but it also includes Iceland, Montenegro, Norway, Serbia, as well as the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Besides traditional civil protection, the Mechanism provides support in the context of marine pollution emergencies by collaborating with the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA).

In this call the two separate policy areas, namely prevention and preparedness, have their own specific objectives and budgets.

Eligibility is extended to IPA II countries not yet included in the Mechanism, as Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Turkey. In addition, countries as Algeria and Ukraine, to name a few, are included as they are part of the European Neighborhood Policy.

The deadline for submission is March 14th 2016.
