The purpose of the Civil Protection Financial Instrument is to support the efforts of Member States to protect primarily people, but also the environment and property, including cultural heritage, in the event of natural and man-made disasters, acts of terrorism and technological, radiological or environmental accidents including accidental marine pollution. It also aims to encourage more cooperation between the Member States on civil protection and marine pollution. The 2012 call for project proposals in civil protection has two separate sections: Prevention projects and Preparedness projects.
