In order to enable Participating States to receive and provide further assistance, in the light of article 23 (3) of the UCPM legislation, shelter and basic relief items are considered as ‘critical needs’ for all pending UCPM activations related to this crisis. The rate of EU co-financing for their transport within the framework of the UCPM can be up to 85% of the total transport cost.
Western Balkans - Refugee Crisis (ECHO, UNHCR, NGOs)
As the influx of refugees through the Western Balkans continues, the EU approved additional €17 million to support Serbia and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia to cope with refugee influx. DG ECHO will manage €7 million out of this additional funding to address humanitarian needs; including health services, distribution of food, hygiene and basic non-food items for the winter, among other priorities.
