The other Group 2 donors are Australia, Canada, the European Commission, Ireland, the United Kingdom, the United States and Greece. Compared to other OECD/DAC donors, Germany is below average in three of the five “pillars” – groupings of the key concepts of the Principles of Good Humanitarian Donorship, which the donors have committed to respect – and average in the remaining two. Compared to other Group 2 donors, Germany stands out for its strong performance in Pillar 2 (Prevention, risk reduction and recovery), and below average scores in Pillar 3 (Working with humanitarian partners) and Pillar 5 (Learning and accountability). Germany scored close to average in 18 of the 35 indicators that comprise the Humanitarian Response Index.
