The European Commission announced on 06 June a new aid package of €6 million to help those most in need in the country. The package will help address the humanitarian needs of those affected by the conflict in Colombia and will reinforce the country’s preparedness to natural disasters.
The funding will support the most vulnerable groups such as women, children, and indigenous and Afro-Colombian populations.
Disaster preparedness and capacity-building are integrated into all of the Union’s projects to limit the impact of natural hazards, and to strengthen the response capacity of communities and institutions.
