Summary

From 7 to 10 December the Presence in Albania, the Office of the Co-ordinator for Economic and Environmental Affairs and the OSCE Mission to Montenegro organized a four-day training event for municipal officials and Aarhus Centre representatives in Albania and Montenegro.

The event was dedicated to a full disaster risk reduction (DRR) cycle, including risk management, hazard assessment, climate change, flood management plans, community-based DRR and trans-boundary co-operation. The Presence facilitated the participation of local officials and representatives of Aarhus Centres in Albania.The participants took part in a field exercise in Cetinje, Montenegro, which was flooded in 2010. They worked on site to prepare a flood hazard map and a risk management plan.

The training helped participants to learn to integrate know-how in the implementation of the current community-based DRR project and strengthen interinstitutional co-operation to properly manage disasters in the region. The Aarhus Centres will work closely with the selected municipalities to identify their needs and prepare risk maps that will be made available for all public institutions through a public access platform. A follow-up training session with the same officials will be held in Albania in 2016.
