The implementation plan of the European Consensus on Humanitarian Aid, issued at the end of 2015, focuses on a limited set of collective efforts to achieve incremental changes across the European Union (EU) and its Member States in areas that could underpin more effective and better coordinated EU humanitarian action. The document states that “accountability and quality of aid are priority considerations. Accordingly, the Commission and the Member States have agreed to undertake the identification and promotion of a set of core harmonised key results indicators and support relevant international initiatives in order to better measure whether assistance truly responds to needs and with the desired impact. The endorsement and promotion of the Core Humanitarian Standard will be supported across the EU”.
