The Czech Center for Science and Society (CCSS) from the Czech Republic has signed a contract with EPTISA Servicios de Ingeniera, S.L. from Spain, the leader of the PPRD East consortium.
CCSS will develop and put into operation the basic functional skeleton of the Electronic Regional Risk Atlas (ERRA), in accordance with the requirements set in the Terms of Reference for the Development and Installation of the ERRA Skeleton System. The ERRA is one of the main outputs of the PPRD East project in the ENPI* East Region. PPRD East is an EU-funded project aiming to support countries in the ENPI East Region, including Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine (hereinafter referred to as Partner Countries).
The overall objectives of the PPRD East Programme are:
- to contribute to the development of the Partner Countries‘ civil protection capacities for disaster prevention, preparedness and response;
- to bring the Partner Countries progressively closer to the EU Civil Protection Mechanism and improve cooperation among them.
The ERRA will be a geoportal based on open standards, enabling the user to search, view, download and analyse risk maps and other geodata from the ENPI East Region. It will serve as a tool for disaster managers, operators of crisis management centres, risk assessment specialists, researchers and others.
The key features of the ERRA are:
- Easy administration
- Strong security
- General usability
