Out of commitment to high transparency and accountability and in order to raise awareness to humanitarian issues, the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO) produces a wide range of communication products on its relief work across the globe.

  • Factsheets provide concise information about specific countries, regions or humanitarian theme in which the European Commission is active.
  • Leaflets, books & posters are print material which can be ordered through the EU Bookshop.
  • Annual reports provide detailed information on the European Commission's activities on an annual basis.
  • Eurobarometer analyses the level of awareness of and support to the EU humanitarian and civil protection activities in each EU Member State.
  • Policy guidelines offer technical guidance on specific sectors of interventions for on-the-ground humanitarian partners.

In addition, a number of Online databases provide data and figures on humanitarian aid and civil protection funding and activities.
