05-09-2018

The European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF) supports EU Member States struck by natural disasters, through providing financial assistance to contribute to a rapid return to normal conditions. A budgetary proposal to mobilise the EUSF in order to help Bulgaria and Lithuania to deal with flooding, Greece with an earthquake on the island of Kos, and Poland with storms, is scheduled to be voted during the September plenary session. During the same session the European Parliament is also expected to vote on the Council position on Draft Amending Budget (DAB) 4/2018, which proposes to account for the mobilisation of €33 992 206 from the EUSF.
