Whether it be information campaigns in Bangladesh or producing face masks in refugee camps in Iraq: in April, Germany made available 300 million euro in aid for humanitarian projects to fight COVID-19. Now, the German Government is increasing its support by an additional 150 million euro.
Global health, climate and security, and sexual violence in conflicts: all these issues were on the agenda during the German Presidency of the Security Council in July. In addition, the cross-border resolution on Syria was extended, ensuring access for humanitarian assistance.
When a crisis breaks out and people are in need, fast action can save lives. Whether in the Central African Republic, Yemen or Ukraine, Germany is using the Country-Based Pooled Funds to provide fast and non-bureaucratic humanitarian assistance in emergency situations.
The conflict in Yemen continues unabated and political initiatives have failed to achieve any breakthroughs so far. COVID-19 is further exacerbating this humanitarian disaster. Germany is focusing on civil society initiatives in the UN Security Council.
