Extract from page 129 of the EU Annual Report on Human Rights and Democracy:

« The EU also supported Geneva Call, an organisation that works to improve the protection of civilians in armed conflict and strengthen the respect for IHL by armed non-State actors. The EU supported its work in a number of contexts such as Iraq, Syria, Yemen, the DRC and Libya on the promotion of respect for IHL by all types of armed non-State actors. The EU continued to support the Geneva Call in building globally the humanitarian community’s capacity to negotiate access to war zones with non-State armed groups and to promote their compliance with IHL in armed conflict. Support was also provided from the EU humanitarian aid budget to relevant activities of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the UN OHCHR. »
