South East Europe Assessment Phase (SEEDRMAP)

In 2007, the World Bank, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) initiated the South Eastern Europe Disaster Risk Mitigation and Adaptation Programme (SEEDRMAP), aiming at developing or strengthening national capacities in this region along three components: (i) Disaster risk management institutional capacities and governance; (ii) Hydrometeorological services and their cooperation with sectors; and (iii) Financial risk transfer mechanisms, to assist the beneficiaries in reducing risks associated with natural hazards. During the first phase of the project, fact finding surveys and desk-top studies were performed as the basis for the development of relevant projects in the following areas:
