Developing an evaluation model to assess prevention measures (EVAPREM)

Area of activity/subject: Prevention and preparedness projects in civil protection and marine pollution

Summary of the project: The objective of this project is to develop a universal and comprehensive model for evaluating the results of prevention measures implemented by the rescue boards of European countries. Our aim for the project is to deepen our understanding of the effectiveness and efficiency of the prevention services considering the corresponding socio-economic environment. The project will provide robust evidence and analysis to support policy-makers in understanding the impact of prevention and supports policy-makers at different administrative levels in elaborating and reshaping the selection of prevention services with providing cost effective evaluation tools. The process of the project involves substantial cooperation of countries in Europe and contributes in exchange of experience of improving systematic and strategic planning in the area of prevention services.
