Since 2008, the European Union, United Nations and World Bank have been working together to assist countries recovering from natural or conflict related crises. This support is guided by a joint declaration signed between the three organisations, and operationalised through Post Disaster Needs Assessments (PDNA) in countries recovering from natural disasters, and Recovery and Peacebuilding Assessments (RPBA) for countries recovering from conflict related crisis.

Whilst decision-making rests with country offices, the joint Declaration is supported at headquarter level by High-Level Advisory Groups and Secretariats. From the EU side, DEVCO, ECHO, EEAS, FPI, and NEAR are all represented.

Since 2012, the EU’s  Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI) has provided support to the Joint Declaration through a dedicated project. Support has been provided to both global processes and country assessments, with EU Delegations supported in over 20 countries.
