EXPLANATORY MEMORANDUM

1.Introduction

Draft Amending Budget (DAB) No 3 for the year 2019 accompanies the proposal 5 to mobilise the European Union Solidarity Fund (EUSF) for an amount of EUR 293 551 794 to provide assistance to Romania, Italy and Austria following natural disasters that took place in these Member States in the course of 2018:

·Romania: flooding following heavy rainfall in the North East Region from mid-June to early August;

·Italy: flooding and landslides following heavy rainfall from the Alpine areas in the north down to Sicily;

·Austria: the meteorological phenomena in Italy also affected the alpine/southern regions, in particular Carinthia and Eastern Tyrol;

DAB No 3/2019 proposes to enter the necessary appropriations in the general budget 2019, both in commitments and payments.

2.    Financing

In accordance with Article 10(1) of the MFF regulation, the total amount available for the mobilisation of the EUSF at the beginning of 2019 was EUR 851 082 072, being the sum of the 2019 allocation of EUR 585 829 691, plus the 2018 allocation of EUR 265 252 381 that remained unspent and was carried over to 2019.

The amount that may be mobilised at this stage of the year 2019 is EUR 704 624 649. This corresponds to the total amount available for the mobilisation of the EUSF at the beginning of 2019 (EUR 851 082 072), minus the retained amount of EUR 146 457 423 in order to respect the obligation of keeping aside 25 % of the 2019 annual allocation until 1 October 2019 as stipulated by Article 10(1) of the MFF regulation.
