"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.

Dobrodošli na mrežne stranice Odbora za razvoj (DEVE). Od srpnja 2014. imam čast predsjedati Odborom.

Gotovo milijarda ljudi diljem svijeta živi u teškom siromaštvu. Još je mnogo više onih koji su suočeni s glađu i bolešću i nemaju pristup zdravstvenoj skrbi ili obrazovanju. No naporima za globalni razvoj u okviru Milenijskih razvojnih ciljeva postignut je mjerljiv napredak te su u posljednjih nekoliko godina milijuni ljudi izbavljeni iz siromaštva. Međutim, u isto smo vrijeme svjedoci sve većih nejednakosti i moramo pronaći način kako iskoristiti ekonomski rast za dobrobit većeg broja ljudi.

Doprinos je EU-a u podupiranju razvoja ključan, a važan su element toga podrška i nadzor Parlamenta. Naš odbor sudjeluje u odlučivanju o proračunu za pomoć EU-a, pomno pratimo Europsku komisiju, Službu za vanjsko djelovanje i sve koji se koriste fondovima za pomoć EU-a te zahtijevamo bolju usklađenost između država donatora i agencija. Sudjelujemo u donošenu zakona kojima se utvrđuje okvir za pomoć EU-a za razvoj. Također se sastajemo s dužnosnicima, dionicima i stručnjacima iz cijelog svijeta kako bismo razgovarali o rješenjima i saznali što je doista potrebno na terenu. Pozivam vas da redovito provjeravate novosti i objave, pregledavate dokumente sa sjednica ili čak uživo gledate sjednice našeg odbora.
