The headquarters of the European Commission Directorate General of Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO) is in Brussels, and it has local offices in various countries. ECHO’s broad network is intended to guarantee fast and comprehensive assistance in disaster situations.
Humanitarian assistance and DRR are the two most important instruments used by ECHO, as an EU body, to provide fast and effective support for people affected by disasters and their consequences.
As part of humanitarian assistance, ECHO provides emergency aid to those in need. In many cases, this saves the lives of those affected by natural or man-made disasters. Populations suffering from repeated crises are also prepared to better react to the effects of future emergency situations. Visit website
