DPPI SEE and IPA DRAM partner countries came to Ljubljana this week to discuss the possibility for sustainability of results upon the end of IPA DRAM in November 2019. IPA DRAM has identified five main areas in which the programme results can be sustained and at the same time contribute to the strengthening of DPPI SEE. Those five areas are:

  1. Hosting and maintenance of a regional Electronic Risk Atlas
  2. Updating and upgrading the South Eastern Europe Knowledge Management System (SEEKMS)
  3. Hosting and maintenance of regional DesInventar/Sendai for collection of disaster loss data and Sendai reporting;
  4. Facilitation of hazard-specific regional working groups established by IPA DRAM on seismic risks, floods and wild fires;
  5. Building on IPA DRAM successful capacity building methods (exchange of experts, cross-border learing and support) and the support of a regional pool of experts.

For the purpose of this workshop the organizational comparative advantage methodology was used. This methodology facilitates the process of performing systematic analysis of internal and external factors that affect an organizations ability to take new task,projects or objectives as well as identifying the resources that would be required should the 
organization decide to go ahead.

By working in 3 groups participants of the workshop have analyzed all of the 5 recommended IPA DRAM results. The report which will be the outcome from the workshop will include the findings of the analysis and will draft recommendations to be taken under consideration during the upcoming 38.DPPI SEE Regional Meeting in Tirana (16-17.04.2019).

DPPI SEE Secretariat would like to thank the entire IPA DRAM team and to the participants for their visionary thinking and support for having this event.
