4th European Civil Protection Forum, 15-16 May 2013, Brussels
PRACTICE Members will particpate in the 4th European Civil Protection Forum.
EU Civil Protecion Forum is a unique opportunity for civil protection professionals to come together and advance the debate on the EU's increasing role in disaster management – by discussing best practices, recent developments and new ideas. The last Forum brought together more than 600 participants from politics, academia, civil protection services and international organisations.
This year's Forum will focus on how governments and civil society can work together to create stronger, better and more efficient disaster prevention, preparedness and response policies in the EU and beyond. Decision-makers and civil protection experts will be discussing and brainstorming about disaster risk management, financing, response planning and coordination, solidarity and responsibility as well as prospects for the future. Besides various panels and plenary debates, there will also be an indoor-exhibition with innovative technologies, modules, training centres and international partners.
