Italy's humanitarian assistance

Italy has finalised a new humanitarian policy, formally recognising the good humanitarian donorship (GHD) principles and other major developments in the humanitarian landscape. Recovery is supported through relatively flexible funding to multilateral agencies, and to Italian-designed rehabilitation projects, often implemented by Italian NGOs. Italy shares its expertise in disaster management with partner countries, an effective way to reduce disaster risks. The commitment to increase ODA should benefit the humanitarian budget, which currently suffers from limited resources. However, the new humanitarian policy does not provide strategic guidance on how to allocate funds or add value to Italy’s funding decisions; it is also silent concerning Italy’s position on major policy issues such as migration and food security.
