CROSSIT SAFER

Cross-border cooperation between Slovenia and Italy for a safer region
Priority Axis 4
Enhancing capacity building and cross-border governance
Specific Objective: 
OS 4.1.
Investment Priority: 
PI 11CTE
Typology: 
Strategic
Overall Objective of the Project: 

The overall objective is to strengthen institutional collaboration by stimulating public bodies and key CP actors to plan joint solutions through coordinated measures of prevention, preparedness and response to natural emergencies. The objective contributes to achieving the SO through collaboration between CP institutions, increased coordination in the event of natural emergencies and improved training of CP units.

Project summary: 

The common challenge faced by CROSSIT SAFER is to create an institutional level that is able to manage natural risks, i.e. to reduce the risks related to geomorphological characteristics of the territory and climate change that require better coordination of prevention, warning and response measures to natural emergencies in the Programme area. The overall objective of the project is to build capacity for cross-border institutional cooperation between public authorities and key civil protection organisations by promoting joint emergency response planning with coordinated natural emergency prevention, warning and response measures. The objective will support the strengthening of institutional cooperation in the field of civil protection, the improvement of the coordination of interventions in case of natural emergencies and the increase of the preparedness and equipment of civil protection units. The main project outputs are a cross-border protocol for the harmonisation of measures in case of natural emergencies in the cross-border area, joint cross-border standard operating procedures for intervention and beneficiaries involved in joint civil protection training programmes. The benefits will directly impact all participating PPs and indirectly other civil protection organisations and the whole population of the Programme area. The approach to the common challenges in the Programme area will be aimed in particular at strengthening the institutional cooperation capacity, which will be pursued through the signature of the cross-border cooperation protocol, the harmonisation of procedures and measures in case of natural emergencies and the organisation and implementation of joint training and education programmes for civil protection units in both countries. The need for cross-border cooperation stems from the awareness that natural emergencies know no borders. In order to ensure effective and timely action in the event of natural emergencies in the cross-border area, it is therefore necessary to ensure cooperation and coordinated action by civil protection actors between neighbouring states. CROSSIT SAFER will build on the knowledge and experience of PPs from other EU projects, which will be updated with new and improved forest fire early warning systems, using seismic vulnerability models of buildings and damage assessment, as well as a cartographic software and an application that will allow geographical information systems to be shared in the cross-border area.

Main results: 

The result of the project is to strengthen the institutional cooperation capacity of public authorities and key actors in the field of civil protection for effective emergency management in the cross-border area. This will be achieved by stepping up institutional cross-border cooperation in the field of civil protection by signing a cooperation protocol in the event of natural emergencies and other disasters in the cross-border area, and by coordinating civil protection interventions in the event of natural emergencies through joint operational rescue and risk management procedures, better preparedness of rescuers and better coordination of training pathways for civil protection teams in the cross-border area. The outcome of the project will contribute to improving the coordination of prevention measures, increasing the preparedness and response capacity of civil protection units in the event of natural emergencies and other disasters and, as a consequence, to an increased intensity of cross-border cooperation between institutions in the Civil Protection and Risk Management Programme area.

Objectives and Activities

An analysis of the existing protocols and agreements between the institutions in the area of civil protection and risk management will be carried out as part of the project.
Italy and Slovenia in the field of civil protection and other rescue units in the cross-border area. On the basis of the results of the analysis, a joint cross-border protocol for the coordination of interventions in the event of natural emergencies in the cross-border area will be prepared, involving all institutions and stakeholders on both sides of the border. The aim of the protocol is to coordinate measures to prevent, prepare for and respond to natural emergencies by improving institutional cooperation in the field of civil protection in the Programme area.
