Specific objectives: SO1: Improved capacities for cross-border cooperation, and prevention and intervention during climate change disasters. SO2: Improved the cooperation and the cross-border system for interventions during and recovery after an disaster. Planned activities: A1 – Good practices and raising awareness of local actors is the first group of activities with the following sub-activities: 1.1 Comparative analysis of the application of good practice in 3 areas of emergency intervention; 1.2 Five promotional campaigns for the population, NGOs, and local governments; 1.3.

A4 – Training of emergency services members. The training will be used to “introduce” newly built capacities into the protection systems (purchased equipment, new staff, population, private and public actors). A5 – Joint practical exercises. The best way to test and evaluate plans is through exercises. 5.1 Interventions in protected areas (fire); 5.2 Protection of the population right next to the border; 5.3 MRS intervention; 5.4 Water interventions
Expected results Expected results: Result 1 – Awareness and involvement of local actors will be increased – 1500 inhabitants, 10 NGOs, 10 local governments, and 10 private companies in the cross border area (SO1) Result 2 – (local) disaster management plans and an early warning system between cross-border services will be updated in line with the new epidemiological situation and good practices. Its fulfillment will enable the adjustment of the work of services/actions in accordance with the epidemic, as well as define more precisely the possibilities of cross-border action. (SO1) Result 3 – Equipment of 20 disaster prevention and response services, and infrastructures for interventions at the border between B&H and Montenegro will be improved (SO1) Result 4 – 4 joint trainings will be implemented There will be 4 joint trainings as a prerequisite and preparation for holding rescue exercises and interventions. The trainings will serve to “introduce” newly built capacities into the protection systems (purchased equipment, new staff, population, private and public actors). The objective of the trainings is to reduce the response time in local communities, but also in cross-border cooperation. Mutual (cross-border) assistance of services is defined by interstate agreements and protocols. (SO2) Result 5 – 4 joint emergency rescue service exercises will be held Joint exercises would be thematic and the proposed topics are protected areas – fire fighting (eg Hutovo blato in B&H or Trebesja Nikšić), high-rise residential buildings – fire brigade, MRS, flood protection.
