DFID published guidance on 23 August for UK organisations delivering EU humanitarian aid programmes if there is no Brexit deal so that they can make informed plans and preparations for that unlikely scenario. The guidance set out our offer of financial assurance for UK organisations to allow them to continue bidding for funding from the core budget of European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) without undertaking unmanageable financial and programmatic risk.
