Central-Eastern European countries place more attention on financial risk reduction measures and disaster mitigation than on prevention measure
Furthermore, Central-Eastern European countries consider only risk reduction measures which include financial measures, such as post-disaster financial support; they also place more attention on post-disaster mitigation than on the prevention measures. It has been explained by the fact that planning tradition of these countries does not include preventive strategies such as intelligent territorial planning, as well as with the rapid transition from public to private property rights, that happened in these countries in the 1990s (Raška, 2015). Therefore, not surprisingly, programmes that can be found in Western Europe are rarely implemented in Central-Eastern European countries (Raška, 2015).
