Romania – Home Affairs Programme

In Romania, DSB is Donor Program Partner (DPP) for the Home Affairs programme. Romanian program operator is the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MoIA).

The programme aims at strengthening the ability to ensure civil rights and protection of citizens – crucial elements for an inclusive society and sustainable growth.

The programme covers three targeted programme areas:

  • No. 18: Asylum and Migration
  • No. 20: International Police Cooperation and Combating Crime
  • No. 23: Disaster Prevention and Preparedness

Of particular interest to DSB is enhancing cooperation in the area of disaster prevention and preparedness between relevant Romanian and Norwegian authorities.

Man-made and natural disasters are increasing as a result of the effects of climate change, rapid urbanization, demographic pressure and more intensive use of land.

Ensuring efficient strategies for regional and national preparedness and emergency planning is a priority for national authorities. The programme will provide support for the improvement of crisis preparedness.

DSB also participates as donor project partner in a predefined project on improved disaster resilience, under programme area 23 'Disaster prevention and preparedness'.
