UN Consolidated Appeals for humanitarian assistance in the Great Lakes Region and South Eastern Europe: meeting between Ruud Lubbers, UN High Commissioner for the Refugees, and Poul Nielson
Poul Nielson, Member of the EC in charge of Development and Humanitarian Aid, Ruud Lubbers, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and Eddy Boutmans, Belgian Secretary of State for Development Cooperation, were present at the Brussels launch of the UN Consolidated Inter-Agency Appeals 2002. The global launch took place across the world on Tuesday, 27 November 2001. Kofi Annan, UN Secretary General,launched it in New York. The UN is asking for $2.5 billion dollars to help 33 million people with 18 humanitarian crises identified for the 2002 Appeal. The consolidated appeals process involves UN agencies coordinating their efforts and is seen as a way of improving the quality and accountability of humanitarian programmes. The EU is the world's largest aid donor and therefore, is heavily involved in suporting the UN's programmes. Both institutions are working more closely together according to Poul Nielson. However, with only 50% of the amount required donated for the 2001 Appeal, the UN is urging Member States to be generous and to give them the proper financial resources so that UN agencies can properly help the vulnerable. The appeals presented for the Great Lakes region concern Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo while the appeals presented for South Eastern Europe concern the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia excluding Kosovo and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia
