EC-ECHO is responsible for formulating EC humanitarian aid policy and implementing the EU’s humanitarian aid budget. It also coordinates the EU’s disaster response mechanism.
EC- ECHO consolidated its progress and remains in the ‘good category’. It is now leading the three EC agencies.. We now call on them to:
- Prioritise the publication of performance-related information to include reviews and evaluations and results.
- Improve its publication of disaggregated budgets and should start publishing sub-national location coordinates.
- To demonstrate the impact of transparency on development work, EC-ECHO should take responsibility to promote the use of the data they publish: internally, to promote coordination and effectiveness; and externally, to explore online and in-person feedback loops, including at country-level.
