Statement by Štefan Füle on the upcoming Donors' Conference to support Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina's post-disaster recovery
On 23 June 2014, Štefan Füle, Member of the EC in charge of Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy, made a statement on the Donors' Conference that the European Commission will host in Brussels on 16 July to continue its help with the aftermath of the devastating floods in the Western Balkans and mobilise further support to Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina to deal with the consequences of this natural disaster. The conference will be co-organised with France and Slovenia.
International donor countries, international financial institutions, and main relevant civil society organisations will be invited. The aim of the conference will be to collect pledges from donors for the countries' recovery from the floods.
In addition to mobilising international financial support, the Donors' Conference will also contribute to stepping up co-operation over floods and natural disasters in the region. SHOTLIST
