FURTHER GUIDANCE NOTE COVID-19-RELATED HUMANITARIAN AID TO COUNTRIES AND AREAS SUBJECT TO EU SANCTIONS

A news release from the EU on 16 November advised that the aim is to give practical guidance on how to comply with EU sanctions when providing humanitarian aid, in particular medical assistance, to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Guidance clarifies the responsibilities and the processes for the provision of this aid in order to facilitate activities of humanitarian operators in Nicaragua, and the channelling of equipment and assistance to fight the pandemic.  The Guidance Note addresses a number of questions received by the Commission from donors, NGO, banks and other actors involved in humanitarian activities, and from national authorities.  This Note supplements others which cover Syria (May 2020), Iran and Venezuela (October 2020).

I had omitted the following link (as it did not seem to generate much interest!), but it seemed time to add it again and say that, if you would like to make a (polite) gesture and help me with my removal and computer costs, I have a page at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
