Kristalina Georgieva, the European Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, launched Thursday a stakeholders' consultation for the creation of EVHAC.
The EVHAC stakeholders conference is bringing together representatives of the humanitarian aid, civil protection and volunteering communities to inform them about the state of play and invite them to participate in the public online consultation which will be organized afterwards.
According to the European Commission, the path to the EVHAC will be paved by discussions on the increased professionalism in humanitarian aid, the focus on local volunteering and capacity building, the complex political and security contexts in which humanitarian workers are employed, and the need to take into account existing voluntary schemes and avoid duplications.
