Welcome to the Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network!
Preventing, preparing for and responding to disasters requires strong cooperation, coordination at many levels and a combination of skills and expertise.
The Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network aims to strengthen the Union Civil Protection Mechanism in all of these aspects.
As the Knowledge Network grows this platform is going to grow with it, providing new opportunities to share the knowledge, experience and the stories of our community members.
Members of the civil protection and disaster risk management community can now register on the platform. New collaborative features are coming – soon, you will be able to join discussions hosted by different projects, start your own conversations, look for colleagues in the field, search for new professional connections or inspiration for new project ideas, contribute to the knowledge library, and much more.
