Abstract: The EU¿s integrated approach to crisis management covers the full crisis management cycle encompassing prevention, preparedness, response and recovery, and a variety of crises occurring in the EU or outside it, ranging, but exclusively, from natural disasters, health emergencies, transport incidents, and radiological emergencies and nuclear accidents to conflict, border incidents and maritime incidents. The European Commission and the Community Agencies are responsible for a wide range of systems (alert, early warning, coordination and satellite) and capabilities (situation rooms and services) that complement the use of a whole range of crisis management relevant policies and instruments of the EU. This chapter briefly describes how these systems and capabilities permit the Community and the EU Member States to effectively address the multi-dimensional challenges of crisis prevention, preparedness, response and recovery.
