DG ECHO publishes the "Minimum Environmental Requirements and Recommendations" document
The commitment to reducing the environmental footprint of humanitarian aid now guides DG ECHO’s own actions and cooperation with partners. DG ECHO will apply a ‘mainstreaming’ approach, meaning that environmental impacts should be mitigated across projects, programmes and eventually, the organisations themselves to the extent possible.
As one of the key outputs of DG ECHO’s approach to reducing the environmental footprint of humanitarian aid, DG ECHO, together with its partners, has developed project-level minimum environmental requirements for partners, covering priority areas.
The reults have been published in the document "Minimum Environmental Requirements and Recommendations"
The document tackles actions purely related to the project level, however the minimum environmental requirements are intended to signal to partners which measures DG ECHO will be looking for in project proposals and project monitoring due to their immediate potential to reduce the environmental impact of humanitarian aid.
They are called “minimum” environmental requirements and recommendations because DG ECHO expects these measures to be reflected in project proposals in the applicable contexts as a minimum.
