Under the chairmanship of DG Fire Safety and Civil Protection of Republic of Bulgaria the 42nd DPPI SEE Regional meeting has been completed this week. During the first day of the meeting the achievements in 2021 were presented in accordance to DPPI SEE Strategic Development Plan 2021-2025. Although a challenging year due to COVID-19, DPPI SEE succeed to the set objectives focusing on trainings, analytical work and project management. Main achievements in that context are the Cave Rescue Training in Slovenia, the first simulation exercise conducted with support of the Global Logistics Cluster – LOGEX 2021, the translation of the UNDRR Hazard Classification Technical Report and the Risk INFORM Index for 3 pilot DPPI SEE countries. During the Advisory Board session with our partners from NATO CoE in Sofia and SEEHN we have introduced the idea of having a Joint Calendar of Events in 2022 to promote all the trainings and learning opportunities happening in our geographical context. The Advisory Board session also included a panel discussion on the importance of the risk insurance with participation of EuropRe, TARSIM Turkey and PAID Romania. Looking forward to 2022, under the chairmanship of Civil Protection Directorate of Republic of Croatia we will cover the topic of DRR Financing!
