  4. You can use free text when searching for interesting calls. All you need to do is to enter a phrase in the text bar that EuroAccess is to look for in its database.

    When looking for a phrase in the free text bar, the system will perform an exact-match search. This means that it will search the database for the exact words, in their exact order. However, you can opt for two different approaches:

    1. You can use “AND”, in this way: One AND Two. EuroAccess will look in the database for the fields which records contain both One and Two, regardless of their order and their position in any sentence.

    2. You can use the “OR”, in this way: One OR Two. In this case, EuroAccess will search the database for fields that contain either the word One or the word Two. It will retrieve all the fields with one of these words or with both.

    However, you should prefer phrases or complex words over simple words in you text searches.

Call content

short description

The general objective of the projects under the Prevention topic is to contribute to strengthening the cooperation among the Member States and between the UCPM and third countries for the prevention of natural and human-induced disasters.

Call objectives

Prevention shall be understood as any action aimed at reducing risks or mitigating adverse consequences of a disaster for people, the environment and property, including cultural heritage. The general objective of the projects under the Prevention topic is to contribute to strengthening the cooperation among the Member States and between the UCPM and third countries for the prevention of natural and human-induced disasters. While cross-border cooperation is relatively well-established in the area of emergency response, cross-border and multi-country cooperation during the prevention phase can be further enhanced.

Disasters know no borders. The risks posed by natural and human-induced hazards are cross-border due to their spatial dimension (e.g., earthquakes, fires, severe weather, floods and space weather), as well as the volatility and scale of their impacts (e.g., pandemics, impact of climate change on zoonotic diseases, nuclear/industrial accidents, marine pollution). The human, economic and environmental impacts triggered by these disasters, as well as their likelihood of occurrence exist irrespective of national borders.

Various EU legislative acts already call for a collaborative approach to disaster risk assessment and awareness raising: for example, for flood risks or cross-border threats in the health sector. The UCPM legislation also aims at stepping up the collaboration at cross-border level and between Member States prone to the same types of disasters.

The UCPM-2024-KAPP call also includes a wildfire risk management priority. Wildfire is one of the most recurrent hazards leading to the activation of the UCPM. In 2022, wildfires burned more than 785 000 ha, being the second worst year on record for the EU, after 2017, with a 127% increase over the average burnt area in the last 15 years. In 2023, the trend continued with a bunt area of more than 463 000 ha, representing a 31% increase over the same average. Therefore, wildfire risk management receives a particular attention under this call, with a view to allow integrated projects and the development of relevant tools and activities.

In order to contribute to achieving the above general objective, applicants are invited to select one or several of the following topic priorities.

Priority 1: Risk assessments, anticipation and risk management planning

Without an assessment that takes into account cross-border risks, cascading effects, and exposed or vulnerable areas and groups, including persons with disabilities, DRM strategies will only partially address the risks a country faces. This priority aims at enhancing the eligible entities’ capability to identify and assess relevant disaster risks with potential transboundary/trans-European and cross-sectoral impacts and use that information to reinforce disaster prevention and preparedness activities.

This priority correlates with the Union disaster resilience goal No. 1: ‘Anticipate - Improving risk assessment, anticipation and DRM planning’.

Priority 2: Risk awareness

Population plays an important role in disaster prevention and preparedness and citizens are usually the first responders to natural or human-induced disasters. National, regional and local authorities should cooperate, together with the private sector and civil society organisations, to increase disaster risk awareness and preparedness of the population. Evidence-based risk information and communication, as well as education activities, targeted to the public, including vulnerable groups and persons with disabilities, and volunteers, thus become effective tools to raise awareness on disaster prevention, preparedness and response measures.

This priority correlates with the Union disaster resilience goal No. 2: ‘Prepare -Increasing risk awareness and preparedness of the population’.

Priority 3: Early warning

Early warning systems are key elements for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. In the wake of the Covid-19 crisis and with the recent extreme weather events and cascading impacts across sectors, the importance of advanced multi-hazard and risk warnings has never been more widely acknowledged. Although in Europe there is considerable experience with early warning systems, especially for weather and climate-related hazards, recent disasters have shown that more effort and collaboration is necessary. This would include the use of new technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, in order to be able to process large volumes of data in a timely fashion, appropriate for emergency management.

This priority correlates with the Union disaster resilience goal No. 3: ‘Alert - Enhancing early warning’.

Priority 4: Wildfire risk management

Moving towards an integrated wildfire risk management is critical to building more resilient landscapes and communities. This priority aims to encourage integrated projects that address the underlying causes of increased wildfire risk and support the development of new governance models and guidelines. Improved wildfire risk governance, assessment, planning, prevention, and post-fire restoration should be addressed in an integrated manner, in addition to fire suppression actions, including by using Artificial Intelligence techniques. According to recent studies, the results of wildfire prevention investments benefit-cost assessments yield net benefits. Wildfire prevention encompasses a broad variety of actions - including on forest management, spatial planning, training and education activities, public awareness, early warning, shared risk governance, etc. It also requires action at all levels (national, regional, and local), while considering cross-country implications and a multi-sectorial governance, involving forest owners, communities, authorities, tourism actors, researchers, etc. Proposals should take an integrated approach and address the links among various risk management steps.

This priority correlates with the three Union disaster resilience goals identified for the priorities 1, 2 and 3, given its cross-cutting and holistic approach. It also contributes to the implementation of the Wildfire Prevention Action Plan.
