(MULTI) – IATE Term of the Week: RescEU | TermCoord


Earlier in February, MEPs approved plans to boost the EU’s emergency response, in order to enable member states to respond to emergencies and disasters in a quicker and more efficient way, whether they are recurrent or unexpected in nature.

Natural or man-made disasters can occur at any place, any time, and cause a significant human and financial loss every year. In 2017 alone, over 200 people were killed across Europe, and the cost of these natural disasters was estimated to be around €10 billion.

To have a more effective system in place, the European Parliament wants to create a new reserve of resources to be able to provide in an increased level of assistance in place. This resource will be known as RescEU.
