Extracts from the press conference by Johannes Hahn proposal to make the EU Solidarity Fund faster and simpler for support after disasters

72 views

At a press conference on 25 July 2013, Johannes Hahn, Member of the EC in charge of Regional Policy, presented a proposal to reform the EU Solidarity Fund. The plans will make the Fund more responsive and simpler to use with clearer criteria as to who can benefit. The new legislative proposal simplifies the existing rules so that aid can be paid out more rapidly. The plans also introduce the possibility of advance payments for the first time. They spell out more clearly who and what will be eligible, particularly for regional disasters. As well as this, the reform encourages Member States to put disaster prevention and risk management strategies higher on the agenda. The principles of the Fund are unchanged as is the way it is financed, outside the normal EU budget.
