VOICE Policy resolution: An Urgent call to protect principled humanitarian aid


The 2022 VOICE Policy resolution: An Urgent call to protect principled humanitarian aid is officially out! 

In this year's General Assembly  the network of humanitarian NGOs calls on the EU and its Member States to consistently uphold principled humanitarian aid worldwide through the adoption of the following set of recommendations:

Principled humanitarian aid

  • Ensure that the speed and scale of funding generously provided to Ukraine becomes the new normal and is replicated for all important humanitarian crises, current and future
  • Guarantee humanitarian aid funding allocations prioritise life-saving aid and are not reallocated for any political or economic considerations
  • Systematically include humanitarian exemptions to all EU and MS sanctions regimes

Funding share and allocation

  • Substantially increase humanitarian aid funding to cover the increasing and record humanitarian needs

International Humanitarian Law (IHL)

  • Promote and uphold IHL, protect civilians and support humanitarian access
