As regards the Agencies of the United Nations, the framework agreement EC/UN, signed on 29 April 2003 by Deputy Secretary General Fréchette and Commissioner Nielson, fixes the general legal framework for the relations between the Commission and these organisations in the domain of humanitarian aid.
The UN Agencies concerned by this Financial and Administrative Framework Agreement - known as FAFA - are indicated in the Preamble of the FAFA itself (first page). Please note that the FAO is also a signatory of the Agreement.
See the FAFA.
See the implementing documents applicable to all types of grants, including DIPECHO, and contributions managed by the Humanitarian Aid Directorate General.
