WORKING WITH DG ECHO VISIBILITY | 2021 - 2027
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.
- external communication of EU funding and partnership, 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
When a Partner works through an implementing partner (IP), it has to ensure that their obligations on visibility and communication also apply to the implementing partner(s).
In consortia, all DG ECHO Partners should implement the visibility and communication obligations, for example, by ensuring EU visibility on their individual homepage.
