EU Solidarity Fund: Commission moves to help Italy, Greece, Slovenia and Croatia after flood, earthquake and ice storm disasters

27/08/2014

The European Commission has proposed an aid package worth nearly €47 million for Sardinia (Italy), Slovenia, Croatia and Kefalonia (Ionian Islands, Greece) after a series of natural disasters struck the regions in late 2013 and early 2014. Italy is set to receive €16.3m after serious flooding late last year, while Slovenia and Croatia will be granted up to €18.4m and €8.6m respectively to cover recovery operations costs after the severe ice storm in January-February 2014. 

Commissioner for Regional Policy, Johannes Hahn, who oversees the Fund and signed today’s proposal, said. "The EU Solidarity Fund helps these countries get back on their feet after severe destruction of essential infrastructure and damage economic activity. These amounts are specific and targeted to help address the immediate and direct impact of natural disasters in the affected regions. In addition, the overall development of these regions is supported through the European Structural and Investment Funds which concentrate resources to boost overall competitiveness and growth by targeting important sectors of the regions."
