"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 spletni strani Odbora za razvoj (DEVE). V čast mi je, da sem od julija 2014 predsednica tega odbora.
 
Na svetu skoraj milijarda ljudi živi v skrajni revščini. Še več je takih, ki se spopadajo z lakoto in boleznijo ali nimajo dostopa do zdravstvenega varstva ali izobraževanja. Globalna razvojna prizadevanja so v okviru razvojnih ciljev tisočletja vseeno pripeljala do merljivega napredka, zato smo v zadnjih letih videli, da se je na milijone ljudi rešilo revščine. Hkrati pa opažamo, da je neenakost vse večja, zato moramo poiskati način, da bo  gospodarska rast prinašala korist večjemu številu ljudi. 
 
Prispevek Evropske unije k razvoju tretjih držav je bistvenega pomena, parlamentarna podpora in nadzor pa sta pri tem pomemben element. Naš odbor sodeluje pri določanju proračuna izdatkov za pomoč EU, poleg tega pa pozorno nadzorujemo Evropsko komisijo, Evropsko službo za zunanje delovanje in vse uporabnike sredstev pomoči EU ter si prizadevamo za boljšo usklajenost držav donatoric in agencij. Sodelujemo pri pripravi zakonodaje, ki zagotavlja okvir za razvojno pomoč EU.  Srečujemo se tudi z uradniki, deležniki in strokovnjaki z vsega sveta, da razpravljamo o rešitvah in prisluhnemo resničnim potrebam na terenu. Vabim vas, da redno pregledujete novice in obvestila ter da se seznanite z dokumenti sej ali celo v živo spremljate seje odborov.
