The European Commission has adopted a Recommendation and a Communication to establish common goals to boost disaster resilience in the areas of civil protection.
This includes ways to better prepare European countries for natural hazards, including earthquakes, floods and forest fires to name a few. In view of the rapidly changing risk landscape, the European disaster resilience goals aim to improve the capacity of the EU, its Member States and Participating States to the EU Civil Protection Mechanism to anticipate and withstand the effects of future major disasters and emergencies.
The goals can be found here.
