  • Risk assessment and mapping
  • GIS interface to share existing resource and territorial layers
  • Protocols to improve response based on risk scenarios
  • Developing a cross-border mobile radio network covering the area to improve emergency communications
  • Planning and execution of a simulation exercise
  • Training cross-border civil protection organisations in response protocols and developing public awareness
