How the EU budget is spent: Humanitarian Aid

23-11-2015

The European Union's expenditure for humanitarian aid provides needs-based, emergency response to natural disasters and man-made crises outside the Union's borders, in order to preserve life, prevent and alleviate human suffering, and maintain the human dignity of those affected. The EU remains a leading global donor of humanitarian aid, as well as an example for a high standard of humanitarian aid delivery. Despite that, it still faces challenges in responding to the growing demand for humanitarian assistance worldwide.
