Member States and Commission to streamline their humanitarian aid efforts

At the 3088th Economic and Financial Affairs Council meeting on 17 May, EU member states agreed to align their humanitarian aid efforts more strongly with the efforts undertaken by the European Commission. Ministers expressed their commitment to work towards a sharing of funding intentions and strategies between the Commission and member states, as well as a greater number of joint missions and evaluations. While acknowledging the leading role of the United Nations in international humanitarian aid, ministers want to give the EU a stronger and more active role in international fora. The member states also pointed to the importance of disseminating the European Consensus on Humanitarian Aid and good humanitarian donorship (GHD) principles more strongly.
