Throughout the year, VOICE produces and disseminates key documents reflecting on humanitarian aid issues at the EU level and from an NGO perspective. They are addressed to decision-makers within the European institutions, at the National level, to NGO networks and other stakeholders of the humanitarian community, as well as to the VOICE members. Some documents are produced by the VOICE Secretariat with the support of VOICE members while others are publications from members and other key stakeholders in the humanitarian sector. 

Please note that members-only documents will not be visible unless you are logged in.

    VOICE together with Civil society networks jointly made recommendations ahead of the Finance For Development Agreement; since it presents an opportunity for disaster risk reduction (DRR) funding to be institutionalised. We call on developed countries to commit to:
    1) Incorporate resilience building as a condition for providing OverseasDevelopment Assistance (ODA) to ensure that all new investments are risk informed, reduce risk, and are acceptable for those people who bear any new risk. e.g. through the introduction of resilience markers in funding applications.
    2) Allocate 5% of ODA as funding for DRR specific activities
    3) Provide a percentage (50%) of national DRR budgets directly to local governments for community-led DRR projects.

    VOICE position papers

    Tags: DRR, NGOs

    The Hyogo Framework for Action on Disaster Risk Reduction (HFA) has provided critical guidance to reduce disaster risk. Its implementation has, however, highlighted gaps in addressing the underlying risk factors and effectively safeguarding communities. In order to build on the successes of the HFA and address its shortcomings, the Post-2015 Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Framework must work to address reality at the local level. The new framework calls for actors to identify their roles in implementation. This Joint Statement outlines the commitments that governments should make and that civil society organizations (CSOs) will make to ensure that policies are translated into meaningful solutions at the local level.

VOICE also expects the EU Member States and institutions to continue to emphasize the essential role of NGOs and to make sure that NGOs’ views are taken into consideration throughout the WHS process and for them to be appropriately included in the outcomes of the Summit.
