The work of the Europe, Asia and Americas division of Humanitarian Aid covers those parts of the region most affected by natural disasters. For this reason, the division works in different sectors including reducing risks and strengthening rapid response mechanisms in the event of natural disasters (Central America, Bolivia, Central Asia).
The division is carrying out several public reconstruction and rehabilitation projects in areas devastated by conflicts (Sri Lanka ended in 2016) and natural disasters (Haiti, Pakistan). It is supporting programmes designed to protect populations affected by armed conflicts (Myanmar, Colombia). Finally, it regularly carries out emergency aid operations, such as those in response to the massive earthquake in Haiti in 2010, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in 2013, the conflict since 2014 in Ukraine, the earthquakes in Nepal in 2015 and in Ecuador in 2016, and hurricane Matthew in Haiti in 2016.
