As the biggest humanitarian aid donor in the world, the European Commission is committed to making clear which humanitarian emergencies it funds and how much. The European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO) manages and coordinates EDRIS, the European Emergency Disaster Response Information System which is updated directly by the Member States to provide detailed information on funding. In turn, this information system partly powers the European Commission's EU Aid Explorer website which gives a complete breakdown of both the EU's humanitarian and development aid around the globe.
