Project ID: 1984
Funded under: FP5-JRC

Abstract

The NEDIES project is being conducted at Ispra by the Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen (IPSC) of the EC Directorate General Joint Research Centre (JRC). The objective of the project is to support the Commission Services of the European Communities, Member State Authorities and EU organisations in their efforts to prevent and prepare for natural disasters and accidents, and to manage their consequences.

A main NEDIES activity is to produce "lessons learnt" reports based on experience gained from past disasters. This report discusses lessons learnt from recent forest fire disasters. It is based on the contributions presented at a NEDIES meeting held at Ispra JRC on 23 and 24 May 2002.
