Risk Management Capability Based on Gaps Identification in the BSR (From Gaps to Caps)

The project aims to facilitate future national assessments of risk management capability in accordance with the EU Decision on the Union Civil Protection Mechanism among the participating states.

The project endeavours to invoke a broader perspective in the field of risk management capability assessment and will analyse the conclusions made after comparing evaluations of exercises and studies of real-life experiences which will serve as basis for developing methodology for future assessments of capability among the Baltic Sea States with a special focus on cross-border and regional dimensions.
