PPRD South III – Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural and Man-Made disasters in Middle East and North Africa Partnership Countries


The project’s overall objective is to contribute to increasing resilience and reducing the social, economic and environmental costs of natural and man-made disasters in the ENP South region, based on the results of the PPRD South Program and the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM).
The specific objectives are: 1) National approaches to disaster management are further developed, based on prevention, mitigation, and preparedness rather than on response, with the involvement of all relevant governmental actors as well as of civil society stakeholders. 2) Intra-regional, and where appropriate regional, co-ordination and co-operation is enhanced, in order to have coordinated responses of countries of the Mediterranean Basin affected by the same disaster; and institutional co-operation between the UCPM and the ENP South partner countries’ civil protection agencies is strengthened.

PPRD South project is funded by the European Commission from 2018-2021 and had a budget of € 5000000. It is implemented by Expertise FranceIt is a regional project that targeted southern Mediterranean countries, such as Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.
