The European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF) was created after the severe floods in Central Europe in the summer of 2002. Since then, it has been used for 76
disasters covering a range of different catastrophic events including floods, forest fires, earthquakes, storms and drought. 24 different European countries
have been supported so far with an amount of over €5 billion.

The Commission proposes to give Spain €3.2 million following the forest fires in Galicia of October 2017. The EU Solidarity Fund aid can help
finance the restoration of public infrastructure and cover the costs of clean-up operations and of temporary accommodation.
