Submission Deadline: 4 April 2019.

Europe and its neighbours face a wide range of disaster risks, such as floods, forest fires, earthquakes and various technological, radiological and environmental accidents, resulting in loss of life, destruction of property, environment and cultural heritage. These challenges are further exacerbated by climate change which contributes to the increasing frequency and intensity of weather-related disasters across Europe.

The Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM) was established to strengthen the cooperation and coordination between the European Union and the Member States in the field of civil protection.

This Call for Proposals seeks to identify and finance projects aimed at strengthening cooperation within Europe under two separate topics: (i) Prevention and (ii) Preparedness in civil protection and marine pollution.
