The meeting, co-organised by the UfM and the EU, seeks to facilitate thematic discussions focusing on common humanitarian aid and crisis management challenges. The frequency and intensity of disasters has increased in the last decade, exerting considerable pressure on national authorities. Disasters are increasingly resulting in high casualties in terms of human, economic and environmental losses over the globe, and the Mediterranean is no exception. Information sharing and a coordinated/common approach to disaster risk management has proven to be more effective and efficient in this new environment.
Cooperation between UfM Members States is therefore a priority in the field of Civil Protection, since disasters ‘know no borders’ and the challenges and risks faced are often shared.
