Belgium-Brussels: Programme for peer reviews in the framework of EU cooperation on civil protection and disaster risk management
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Programme for peer reviews in the framework of EU cooperation on civil protection and disaster risk management.
The objective of the peer reviews is to facilitate exchange of good practices and recommend improvements in disaster management policy and operations of the reviewed countries through mutual learning and expert review from reviewing countries. Participation in the peer reviews is on strictly voluntary basis for both the reviewed countries and the peer reviewing countries. The peer review process should also foster policy dialogue, improve consistency and steer progress in critical areas for the EU cooperation on civil protection and disaster risk management.
The objective of this call for tender is to further develop and implement a programme for peer reviews of 6 volunteer countries to be reviewed in disaster risk management/civil protection (4 mechanism participating states and either 1 or 2 enlargement countries not participating in the mechanism or 1 or 2 European Neighbourhood policy countries).
The programme should allow for general peer reviews of disaster risk management policies as well as thematic peer reviews of specific EU disaster risk management/civil protection priorities, notably on risk assessments, risk management capability assessments, and preparedness strategies, based on the guidelines and frameworks developed under the 2015–2016 peer review programme.
