Project Details: ‘ALTER: Alliance for Disaster Risk Reduction‘ is a 560.000 Euros – 24 months project aiming to create public private partnerships to increase resilience in areas of Armenia that face floods risks originating in earthquakes. Such alliances will be founded on transfer of methods, tools, knowhow and experience from acknowledged entities from Union Civil Protection Mechanism countries to Armenian partners as well as to the Armenian government and key stakeholders. The added value of ALTER is the increased efficiency and effectiveness in use of available resources in order to achieve disaster risk reduction strategies in countries outside EU CP Mechanism.
