The capacity assessment mission for Turkey was implemented at the request of the regional project for South – East Europe (SEE) and Turkey on Disaster Risk Management (DRM).
The purpose of the Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) capacity assessment is to identify capacity gaps related to risk reduction, understand desired capacities and propose recommendations on how these capacities can be achieved. Results of the DRR capacity assessment will contribute to
the development of strong national components as part of the regional capacity development proposal – to be submitted to the European Commission and potentially other interested donors for Phase II of the regional DRM project for SEE and Turkey.
