The X-STOCK project aims to improve emergency management in Bulgaria, Croatia, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia by enhancing cross-border preparedness through shared management of emergency stock. Its strategy includes drafting a cross-border agreement on joint stock management.
The project develops and tests a regional stock-management strategy and accompanying software application with interfaces to all partners' databases. It also provides recommendations for improving procedures, policies and agreements on emergency stock, as well as revisions of national pre-disaster agreements between civil protection authorities, the Red Cross and others.
Cross-border interoperability regarding the set-up and use of emergency stock across the five participating countries is thus significantly increased, and disaster response times are reduced. X-STOCK plans to provide recommendations for replicating and scaling up the initiative in other countries.
