On 1st October the consortium led by B&S Europe, in partnership with the Italian Stato Maggiore della Difesa, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and SAFE officially launched a 3.5M€ EU-funded project targeting CBRN response capacities in Lebanon.

Objective of the project is to strengthen the resilience of Lebanon’s security institutions, reinforce the role they play as drivers of stability and national cohesion, further contributing to enhanced country stability.

The intervention aims at improving inter-agency coordination in response to CBRN incidents through the definition of operating procedures, effective information exchange mechanisms and specialized trainings. Over its thirty four months of implementation it will engage civilian (i.e. Civil Defense, police, firefighters, Red Cross) and military (i.e. Lebanese Armed Forces) actors to build a 24h, 7/7 response capacity in CBRN and disaster management contexts.

SAFE will be responsible for the monitoring and evaluation activities foreseen by the project, as well as mobilization of specialized Italia civil protection experts.
