IOM in collaboration with the Ministry of Migration and Asylum are implementing an action of a developmental nature which aims at the promotion of social integration and raising awareness among beneficiaries of international protection residing in the Closed Controlled Access Centre (CCAC) of Samos through capacity building and their inclusion into a holistic framework for civil protection. By extension, the beneficiaries of the Project will have an increased capacity to respond to emergencies. This process will contribute to the promotion of a holistic approach with regards to the preparedness and management of civil protection in accordance with European standards, and above all, will help to integrate the migrant population into local communities, enhancing their capacity to start and/or maintain contact with the competent authorities, as required on a case-by-case basis (e.g. Fire Brigade, Police, etc.).


  • Increased access of beneficiaries and relevant stakeholders to information material on emergency preparedness and disasters.
  • Enhancing the training and familiarization of the beneficiaries with everyday life issues in order to respond in an immediate and effective way to emergencies/ natural disasters.


  • Language-Intercultural Training
  • Vocational Training

The action is implemented in the framework of National Recovery and Resilience Greece 2.0 with the funding of the European Union – NextGenerationEU.
