"Parliament must insist on rapid solution to EU humanitarian aid payment crisis"

The Chair of the EP Development Committee, Linda McAvan, has expressed grave concern about the lack of payment credits for humanitarian aid operations in the EU budget. Following an exchange with EU Humanitarian Aid Commissioner Georgieva on 3 September, the Committee Chair underlined that proper budgeting and adequate funding for humanitarian aid was crucial to help victims of current crises. She pointed out that currently more people were fleeing conflict zones than in the aftermath of the second world war.
 
McAvan called on the Council of Ministers to swiftly adopt the Draft Amending Budget, presented by the Commission in May, in order to address a widening gap in payments, a gap which is threatening to stall humanitarian aid operations to which the EU has already agreed. Commissioner Georgieva said that "Member States must recognise that it is not only morally proper but also in our interest to bring down the flares of conflict".
 
Following the meeting and based on a mandate from political group Coordinators of the Development Committee, Linda McAvan also expressed these concerns in a letter to the Chair of the Committee on Budgets, Jean Arthuis:
 
"Disruptions in humanitarian aid delivery are incomparable to those in other EU activities: humanitarian aid is often a matter of life or death. (...) The absence of a Council response suggests that crucial humanitarian aid funds are effectively being held hostage to agreement on the entire EU budget for the next year. For the sake of the children, women and men dependent on EU humanitarian relief and of implementing partners' ability to focus on delivery of this relief, Parliament must insist on a rapid solution to the aggravating payment crisis."
 
During the meeting of 3 September, the Development Committee also voted for an increase in the Emergency Aid Reserve in the 2015 budget but the final decision will be with Council and Parliament's plenary.

Tervitussõnad
 
 

Tere tulemast arengukomisjoni (DEVE) veebilehele! Minul on au olla alates 2014. aasta juulist arengukomisjoni esimees.
 
Maailmas elab äärmises vaesuses ligikaudu üks miljard inimest. Veel rohkem on neid, kes võitlevad nälja ja haigustega või kellele tervishoiuteenused ja haridus ei ole kättesaadavad. Aastatuhande arengueesmärkide raames tehtud ülemaailmsed pingutused on küll olukorda märgatavalt parandanud ning viimastel aastatel on miljoneid inimesi vaesusest välja aidatud, ent samas kasvab ebavõrdsus ning tuleb leida viise, kuidas majanduskasvust saaks osa suurem hulk inimesi.
 
ELi panus arengu toetamisse on ülioluline ning parlamendi toetus ja järelevalve on selle väga oluline aspekt. Arengukomisjon osaleb ELi arenguabi eelarvet puudutavate otsuste tegemisel ning teostab hoolikat järelevalvet Euroopa Komisjoni, Euroopa välisteenistuse ja kõikide ELi arenguabi vahendite kasutajate tegevuse üle, samuti seisab komisjon hea doonorriikide ja asutuste tegevuse parema kooskõlastamise eest. Arengukomisjon osaleb ELi arenguabi andmist reguleerivate õigusaktide koostamisel. Samuti kohtub arengukomisjon ametnike, sidusrühmade ja ekspertidega kogu maailmast, et arutada lahendusi ning kuulata, mida tegelikult kohapeal vajatakse. Soovitaksin teil korrapäraselt tutvuda arengukomisjoni uudiste ja teadete ning koosolekudokumentidega või jälgida komisjoni koosolekuid otseülekandes.
