Haiti - Humanitarian : 15 million Euros from Europe to strengthen resilience in Haiti
The European Commission announced an aid package of €15 million for disaster preparedness and resilience-building in Haiti.

"Haiti is particularly vulnerable to natural disasters and we are stepping up EU support to help local populations become better prepared. Investment in prevention and preparedness today can save lives in the future," said EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, Christos Stylianides.

"The EU stands by Haiti, through our support for emergency preparedness as well as longer-term development actions. Our coordinated response strategy will have a true impact on people's lives by assisting those in need and making them more resilient," said the European Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica.

Of the new aid announced today, €5 million will support local disaster preparedness and response capacities in Haiti, to better anticipate and recover from crises caused by drought, cyclones, epidemics, and floods. The remaining €10 million will be allocated to the Pro-Resilience project which aims to improve the livelihoods, food and nutrition security of the most vulnerable households in the country.
