Aid To Uprooted People (AUP)

Under the current financial framework 2014-2020, EU continues to provide support to uprooted people in many countries in Asia. Aid is delivered as part of the Asia Regional Programme under the Development Cooperation Instrument (DCI). An indicative amount of EUR 122 million has been allocated to AUP programmes until 2020.

In past years the EU has been the main provider of needed basic services to large groups of uprooted people in many settings, and interventions financed by AUP have delivered a significant amount of Linking Relief, Rehabilitation and Development (LRRD) in the context of crisis of uprooting. Continued assistance is or may be needed in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, Sri Lankaand Thailand. Given current and future needs – in particular to finance actions to effectively link relief, rehabilitation and development- allocations broadly in line with previous commitments are warranted.

Support will be provided to reintegrate or integrate uprooted people, including support to local communities, intercultural dialogues and resettlement areas.
