WORKING WITH DG ECHO AS AN NGO PARTNER | 2021 - 2027

HUMANITARIAN PARTNERSHIP 2021-2027

The Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG ECHO) does not usually intervene directly on the ground.  The implementation of humanitarian aid actions is done by humanitarian organisations, such as humanitarian Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), with which DG ECHO enters into a partnership.

 

The partnership between the Commission and NGOs is enshrined in a Certificate that varies according to the type of partner involved.

 

With this partnership, the partners and DG ECHO contribute together to the effectiveness and efficiency of humanitarian aid.

 

The strength of the partnership is based on the professionalism of the partners, their diversity, their capacity to respond to humanitarian needs and their adherence to agreed rules and standards

 

DG ECHO respects in all its actions the fundamental humanitarian aid principles of humanity, independence, neutrality and impartiality.

 

More on the quality of the partnership between NGOs and DG ECHO in the EU Humanitarian Partnership Certificate 2021 Guidance – Chapter 2.1.
