Legal & Institutional Framework


Natural and technological hazards including earthquakes, floods, landslides, forest fires and industrial incidents represent a considerable threat to the Republic of Montenegro. The recent urban sprawl and the industrial growth of the country have exposed an increasing number of people to the potential consequences of these hazards.
The Government is well aware of the positive impact that efficient management of risks could have on the country’s development, especially for the sectors of tourism and industry, which depend on a secure environment, and has embarked on a thorough restructuring of the Civil Protection sector. Currently, Civil Protection is evolving, starting from a system of protection and rescue based on the establishment of local units, towards a model focused on disaster prevention.
