LatRC actively works for the implementation of the international project “BALTPREP”

16.06 2020 Projects

On 10 and 12 June the representatives of the Latvian Red Cross who are actively working for the implementation of the international project “BALTPREP – enhancing regional preparedness and response capacity for major accidents in the Baltic Sea region” participated at the project group meetings.

The first was a disaster management technical working group meeting of the Baltic Sea region. It was organised to have a platform in order to share international real-time evaluations and learnings from COVID-19 response.

During the second meeting partners discussed the preparedness plan, which will be updated until the end of the project.

Although the emergency situation in Latvia has been cancelled since 9 June, there are still various safety restrictions in Latvia and in other project countries, so the project meetings took place through online communication channels.

Meanwhile LatRC is planning the international disaster management training, which will take place in Latvia in October 2020.
