At a Glance 23-05-2018

The European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF) supports EU Member States struck by natural disaster, through providing financial assistance to contribute to a rapid return to normal conditions. A budgetary proposal to mobilise the EUSF in order to help Greece deal with earthquakes in Lesbos, France with hurricanes in the Caribbean, and Portugal and Spain with forest fires is scheduled to be voted during the May II plenary session. The decision entails adopting Draft Amending Budget (DAB) 1/2018 to account for the mobilisation of €97 646 105 in EUSF funds.
