WORKING WITH DG ECHO VISIBILITY
Standard visibility for the EU as a donor is a contractual obligation applying to all types of EU-funded humanitarian aid projects. It entails:
- display of the EU humanitarian aid field visual identity. The size and prominence of the EU visual identity will depend in the specific context (e.g. the amount and proportion of EU funding).
- written and verbal recognition of the EU’s role in global humanitarian aid, in partnership with the agency implementing the action, when referring to an EU funded project in media interviews, press releases, webpages, blogs, articles about the project, etc.
Where a partner works through an implementing partner (within grant agreements) or a grant beneficiary (within delegation agreements), the visibility and communication obligations remain fully applicable. The responsibility for ensuring compliance and reporting remains with the ECHO contracting partner.
Where ECHO is one of several donors on a project (multi-donor or co-financed projects), as a general rule ECHO visibility should be ensured in a manner proportional to the ECHO contribution.
In consortia, all partners – not only the partner holding the ECHO contract – should implement the visibility and communication obligations, e.g. by ensuring EU visibility on their individual homepages
