EU Member States are committed to ensure transparency of their humanitarian aid funding (Council Regulation (EC) No 1257/96). In 2004, the European Commission created EDRIS, a web-based information system on European Emergency Disaster Response to identify EU humanitarian aid contributions.
The database lists all annual contributions made by the Member States' Ministries of Foreign Affairs and the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO) for the delivery of humanitarian assistance to people affected by natural or man-made disasters worldwide. It also provides information on how much each EU Member State contributes to a disaster response operation and to which area.
EDRIS contains records of humanitarian aid contributions dating back to 1999 and it is free of access for reporting purposes. However, recording national humanitarian aid contributions and data input is restricted to the Member States' Ministries of Foreign Affairs. Member States are responsible for encoding the information.
Here below you can find reports on Member States' humanitarian contributions per year:
Information on EU funding is transferred from EDRIS to the global humanitarian Financial Tracking System managed by the UN.
EDRIS also feeds in data into the EU Aid Explorer – an EU-wide database on humanitarian and development aid funding.
