Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva is receiving Valerie Amos, UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator. They are getting together in Brussels ahead of their joint humanitarian visit to conflict-torn Central African Republic.

Commissioner Georgieva will show Baroness Amos the EU's new Emergency Response Centre where experts in crisis response work around the clock monitoring humanitarian crises and disasters around the world. The ERC, together with the Commission's network of field experts, is indispensable for the assessment of people's needs on the ground and the delivery of swift and adequate European response to humanitarian challenges.
