About the Disasters Emergency Committee

The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) was formed in 1963 and is an umbrella organisation for 13 humanitarian aid agencies.

At times of overseas emergency, the DEC brings together a unique alliance of the UK's aid, corporate, public and broadcasting sectors to rally the nation's compassion, and ensure that funds raised go to DEC agencies best placed to deliver effective and timely relief to people most in need.

The DEC's remit is to unite agency efforts in times of disaster - such as flood, earthquake or famine - wherever it happens in the world. The way DEC approach their work is to maximise funds raised and ensure they are spent in an effective and fully accountable way.

Crises and emergencies occur regularly throughout the world and the DEC cannot respond to them all. DEC appeals are reserved for major disasters and emergencies which cannot be dealt with by the usual in-country coping mechanisms and where DEC agencies are in a position to respond quickly and effectively. The DEC Decision-making guidelines are used to ensure that a national joint appeal is the appropriate response to a particular emergency.
