Humanitarian Aid

The EU is the world’s leading humanitarian aid donor. Together, the European Commission and the Member States provide a major proportion of global funding for emergency relief. The
Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO) is the EU’s principal actor in the field, funding relief operations implemented through different partners (nongovernmental organisations, UN agencies and international organisations) and coordinating Member States’ policies and activities. ECHO also supports effective humanitarian work across the globe. In 2014 the Commission provided EUR 1.273 billion in humanitarian assistance to help 121 million people in more than 80 countries. The European Parliament and the Council of the European Union act as co-legislators in shaping the EU’s humanitarian aid policy. In addition, Parliament monitors the delivery of humanitarian aid, advocates establishing budgetary provisions that match humanitarian needs and participates in the international debate on more effective global humanitarian action.
