#S63 Mitigating Land-Based Hazard Risks in the Baltic Sea Region (HAZARD)

Priority Area Secure - Protection from emergencies and accidents on land

HAZARD mitigates risks associated with large storages of hazardous materials on land. It focuses on a) recognizing and mitigating potential macro-regional risks and b) ensuring effective measures of prevention, preparedness and response in view of civil protection in urban areas. To fulfil its objectives, HAZARD will improve i) risk impact assessment models and applications; ii) risk prevention measures through enhanced operational procedures, joint exercises and short-term staff exchanges; iii) it will also foster and disseminate the use of state-of-the-art technologies and equipment in risk assessment and prevention.
