The Future of the European Union Solidarity Fund
|Available languages :|
The European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF) was created in 2002 to provide the EU with an instrument which would allow responding effectively to major natural disasters affecting Member States or countries negotiating their accession to the EU. Previously, no such instrument existed for internal action.
Until the end of 2010 the Commission received 85 applications for financial assistance from 23 different countries: 27 of these applications fall within the category of "major natural disaster" which is the main field of application of the Fund.
