Co-operation agreement to improve disaster management

Good Practice Information

The cooperation agreement between Kosice and Miskolc is a direct result of the CivPro project. The cooperation agreement set the common ground for integrated river basin management and prevention coordination between the two regions in case of real disaster events. The agreement aims to compare the two protection systems, and optimise the procedures for common best practice development in the following fields: common disaster prevention and preparedness activity; disaster management operation support; and, recovery, reconstruction and humanitarian aid support after the event. The Bukk Mountains in northern Hungary, Gemer Karst and Salanzy mountains in Slovakia, and the Sajo Hernad River Valley Region (Borsod Abauj Zemplen County/Kosice region) also participate in this project.

Evidence of success

The parties agreed to cooperate on disaster prevention, management and recovery. This regional project seeks to accommodate the interests of all sections of the population in the Carpathian region, and it responds to the principles of EU flood protection regulation.
