Remarks

The GNI-based resource is an ‘additional’ resource, providing the revenue required to cover expenditure in excess of the amount yielded by traditional own resources, VAT-based payments and other revenue in any particular year. By implication, the GNI-based resource ensures that the general budget of the Union is always balanced ex ante.

The GNI call rate is determined by the additional revenue needed to finance the budgeted expenditure not covered by the other resources (VAT-based payments, traditional own resources and other revenue). Thus a call rate is applied to the GNI of each of the Member States.

The rate to be applied to the Member States’ gross national income for financial 2020 year is 0,6438 %.

Legal basis

Council Decision 2014/335/EU, Euratom of 26 May 2014 on the system of own resources of the European Union (OJ L 168, 7.6.2014, p. 105), and in particular point (c) of Article 2(1) thereof.

(2)  The figures in this column correspond to those in the 2019 budget (OJ L 67, 7.3.2019, p. 1) plus amending budgets No 1 to 3/2019.

(3)  The third subparagraph of Article 310(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union reads: ‘The revenue and expenditure shown in the budget shall be in balance’.

(4)  The figures in this column correspond to those in the 2020 budget (OJ L 57, 27.2.2020, p. 1) plus amending budgets No 1 to 5/2020.

(5)  The figures in this column correspond to those in the 2019 budget (OJ L 67, 7.3.2019, p. 1) plus amending budgets No 1 to 3/2019.

(6)  The own resources for the 2020 budget are determined on the basis of the budget forecasts adopted at the 175th meeting of the Advisory Committee on Own Resources on 24 May 2019.

(7)  The third subparagraph of Article 310(1) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union reads: ‘The revenue and expenditure shown in the budget shall be in balance’.

(8)  The base to be used does not exceed 50 % of GNI.

(9)  Calculation of rate: (109 365 134 859) / (169 880 250 000) = 0,643777807361362.

(10)  Rounded percentages.

(11)  The amount of enlargement-related expenditure corresponds to total allocated expenditure in 13 Member States (that have acceded to the Union after 30 April 2004), except for agricultural direct payments and market-related expenditure as well as that part of rural development expenditure originating from the EAGGF, Guarantee Section.

Remarks

This appropriation is intended in particular to cover bilateral and multi-country cooperation actions promoting results in, inter alia, the following areas:

confidence and peace building including amongst children,

security and the prevention and settlement of conflicts,

support to refugees and displaced population including children, in particular (unaccompanied) children, women and victims of sexual violence within and outside armed-conflict areas.

An adequate level of appropriations should be reserved for the support of civil society organisations.

More support is to be given to the stabilisation of Libya in view of recent political developments in the country. Particular attention should be paid to ensuring that Union funding for Libya is not used to finance arbitrary detentions and the detention of vulnerable persons, in particular children, and that migrants are treated in a manner fully in keeping with international human rights standards.

Any income from additional financial contributions from Member States and contributions from third countries or from bodies other than those set up under the TFEU or the Euratom Treaty to certain external aid actions or programmes financed by the Union and managed by the Commission may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations. Such contributions under Article 6 3 3 of the statement of revenue constitute assigned revenue under points (a)(ii) and (e) of Article 21(2) of the Financial Regulation. The amounts entered on the line for administrative support expenditure will be determined, without prejudice to Article 235(5) of the Financial Regulation, by the contribution agreement for each operational programme with an average not exceeding 4 % of the contributions for the corresponding programme for each chapter .

Other assigned revenue received under Items 5 2 2 0 and 6 6 0 0 of the statement of revenue may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations under this item, in accordance with Article 22(1) of the Financial Regulation.

Remarks

This appropriation is intended to cover the financing of humanitarian and food assistance operations of a humanitarian nature to help people in countries outside the Union who are the victims of conflicts or disasters, both natural and man-made (wars, outbreaks of fighting, etc.), or comparable emergencies, for as long as is necessary to meet the humanitarian needs that such situations give rise to. It will be carried out in accordance with the rules on humanitarian aid under Regulation (EC) No 1257/96.

The aid and assistance is granted to victims without discrimination or adverse distinction on the grounds of race, ethnic origin, religion, disability, sex, age, nationality or political affiliation. That aid and assistance is provided in accordance with international humanitarian law and should not be subject to restrictions imposed by other partner donors, as long as it is necessary to meet the humanitarian needs to which such situations give rise.

This appropriation is also intended to cover the purchase and delivery of any product or equipment needed for the implementation of humanitarian aid operations, including the building of homes or shelters for affected groups of people, short-term rehabilitation and reconstruction work, particularly of infrastructure and facilities, the costs associated with external, expatriate or local staff, storage, international or national shipment, logistic support and distribution of relief and any other action aimed at facilitating freedom of access to the recipients of the aid.

This appropriation may be used to finance the purchase and delivery of food, seeds, livestock or any product or equipment needed for the implementation of the humanitarian aid and food assistance operations.

This appropriation may also cover any other costs directly linked to the implementation of humanitarian aid operations and the cost of the measures that are essential for implementing food assistance operations of a humanitarian nature within the requisite timescale and in a way which meets the needs of the recipients, satisfies the requirement to achieve the greatest possible degree of cost-effectiveness and provides greater transparency.

It covers, inter alia:

measures to provide an enabling environment and access to quality education in humanitarian emergencies, including the basic rehabilitation and reconstruction of school buildings and facilities, psycho-social support, training of teachers and any product or equipment needed for the implementation of humanitarian aid operations related to access to education,

feasibility studies on humanitarian operations, evaluations of humanitarian aid projects and plans, visibility operations and information campaigns linked to humanitarian operations,

the monitoring of humanitarian aid projects and plans and the promotion and development of initiatives intended to increase coordination and cooperation so as to make aid more effective and improve the monitoring of projects and plans,

the supervision and coordination of the implementation of aid operations forming part of the humanitarian aid and food assistance concerned activities, in particular the terms for the supply, delivery, distribution and use of the products involved, including the use of counterpart funds,

measures to strengthen Union coordination with the Member States, other donor countries, international organisations and institutions (in particular those forming part of the United Nations), non-governmental organisations and organisations representing the latter,

the financing of technical assistance contracts to facilitate the exchange of technical know-how and expertise between Union humanitarian organisations and agencies or between such bodies and those of third countries,

studies and training linked to the achievement of the objectives of the humanitarian aid and food assistance policy,

action grants and running cost grants in favour of humanitarian networks,

humanitarian mine-clearance operations including public awareness campaigns for local communities on anti-personnel mines,

expenditure incurred by the network on humanitarian assistance (NOHA), pursuant to Article 4 of Regulation (EC) No 1257/96. This is a one-year multidisciplinary postgraduate diploma in the humanitarian field designed to promote greater professionalism amongst humanitarian workers and involving several participating universities,

the transport and distribution of aid or assistance, including any related operations such as insurance, loading, unloading and coordination,

back-up measures that are essential for the programming, coordination and optimum implementation of the aid or assistance, the cost of which is not covered by other appropriations, e.g. exceptional transport and storage operations, processing or preparation of foodstuffs on the spot, disinfection, consultants’ services, technical assistance and equipment directly involved in providing the aid or assistance (tools, utensils, fuel, etc.),

pilot schemes concerning new forms of transport, packaging or storage, studies of food assistance operations, visibility operations linked to the humanitarian operations, and information campaigns to increase public awareness,

the storage of food (including administrative costs, futures operations, with or without options, training of technicians, purchase of packaging and mobile storage units and cost of maintaining and repairing stores),

the technical assistance necessary for the preparation and implementation of humanitarian aid projects, in particular expenditure incurred covering the cost of contracts of individual experts in the field and the infrastructure and logistics costs, covered by imprest accounts and expenditure authorisations, of the Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) units deployed throughout the world.

In order to ensure full financial transparency under Articles 62 and 154 to 156 of the Financial Regulation, the Commission, when concluding or modifying agreements on the management and implementation of projects by international organisations, will make every effort to commit to sending all their internal and external audits regarding the use of Union funds to the Court of Auditors and to the Internal Auditor of the Commission.

Any income from additional financial contributions from Member States and contributions from third countries or from bodies other than those set up under the TFEU or the Euratom Treaty to certain external aid actions or programmes financed by the Union and managed by the Commission may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations. Such contributions under Article 6 3 3 of the statement of revenue constitute assigned revenue under points (a)(ii) and (e) of Article 21(2) of the Financial Regulation. The corresponding amount is estimated at EUR 133 000 000 in payment appropriations. The amounts entered on the line for administrative support expenditure will be determined, without prejudice to Article 235(5) of the Financial Regulation, by the contribution agreement for each operational programme with an average not exceeding 4 % of the contributions for the corresponding programme for each chapter.

Other assigned revenue received under Items 4 0 1 1 and 6 6 0 0 of the statement of revenue may give rise to the provision of additional appropriations under this article in accordance with Article 22(1) of the Financial Regulation.
