Earthquakes: European Commission and Swedish Presidency will host an International Donors’ Conference in support of the people in Türkiye and Syria on 20 March in Brussels
On 20 March in Brussels, the European Commission and the Swedish Presidency of the Council of the EU will host an International Donors’ Conference – Together for the people in Türkiye and Syria – to support the people in Türkiye and Syria affected by the recent devastating earthquakes.
Co-hosted by European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, and by Prime Minister of Sweden, Ulf Kristersson, for the Swedish Presidency of the Council, and organised in coordination with the Turkish authorities, the Donors’ Conference will be open to EU Member States, candidate countries and potential candidates, neighbouring and partner countries, G20 members – except for Russia – member states of the Gulf Cooperation, as well as the UN, international organisations, humanitarian actors and international and European financial institutions.
The EU and its member states intend to make a significant pledge for further relief, recovery, and reconstruction in Türkiye and further relief, recovery, and rehabilitation in Syria. The EU calls on other international partners and global donors to show solidarity with the people in Türkiye and Syria in these difficult circumstances by mobilising pledges in line with the scale and magnitude of the damage.
Invitations are expected to be sent shortly.
