L'ONU et la gestion des catastrophes

En reconnaissance du besoin de contribuer à la réponse en cas de catastrophes et aux efforts de reconstruction, les Nations Unies ont établi en 1971 leur propre mécanisme afin de fournir assistance internationale aux gouvernements quand tels gouvernements adressent une requête d’assistance humanitaire. Toutes les activités de réponse effectuées par les Nations Unies sont coordonnées par le Bureau de Coordination des Affaires Humanitaires (OCHA).


EU-Civil Protection Unit deployed in Haiti

The death toll from the 12 January 2010 earthquake in Haiti stands at over 220,000 people. 1.3 million have been displaced by the earthquake. The EU response to the plight of the Haitian people was prompt and included civil protection. Alongside the humanitarian aid provided through the Commission's DG ECHO, civil protection is a key part of the EU response.
