The present Humanitarian Implementation Plan (HIP) was prepared on the basis of financing decision ECHO/WWD/BUD/2016/01000 (Worldwide Decision) and the related General Guidelines for Operational Priorities on Humanitarian Aid (Operational Priorities). The purpose of the HIP and its annex is to serve as a communication tool for ECHO's partners and to assist in the preparation of their proposals. The provisions of the Worldwide Decision and the General Conditions of the Agreement with the European Commission shall take precedence over the provisions in this document.
This HIP covers the response to humanitarian needs as well as disaster preparedness, risk reduction and resilience activities supporting actions at country level as well as regional thematic initiatives in South America. Regarding response to crises, this HIP focuses largely on the armed conflict in Colombia and its spill over in Ecuador and Venezuela. It has also the potential for response to new crises in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela. These countries, which have been included because of their high exposure and vulnerability to natural disasters and limited capacity to cope, will be also the focus for disaster preparedness, disaster risk reduction and resilience.
