The overall objective of HAZADR project is to establish a cross-border network for the prevention of risks and the management of emergencies, with a view to reducing the risk of pollution of the Adriatic Sea and to strengthening the capacity of the communities in the Adriatic region to respond to environmental and technological hazards caused by maritime incidents resulting or likely to result in spills of oil or other hazardous and noxious substances (HNS).
The project also has five specific objectives and one of these is to improve cross-border coordination of response capacities in the Adriatic region through training of command personnel, operational staff and other actors involved in the implementation of contingency plans and in pollution preparedness and response, and through expanding their knowledge and decision making capabilities.
