Ocean focus at ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly in Fiji

Seas and oceans were amongst the major issues on the agenda at 29th ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly (JPA) in Suva, Fiji. These issues covered development-related dimensions of climate change, biodiversity, renewable energy, fisheries, maritime security, oil and seabed minerals. The ACP-EU JPA brought together lawmakers from across Sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific as well as Members of the European Parliament to engage politically and take joint stances on a number of issues of common concern. JPA Co-Chair Hon. Fitz Jackson added, “There needs to be a recognition to the unique challenges SIDS face, which affect their long-term sustainable development.” The JPA intends to publish joint resolutions on the following issues:  financing of investment and trade, including infrastructure, in ACP countries by the EU blending mechanism; Cultural diversity and human rights in ACP and EU countries; and the Challenges and opportunities in education and vocational training in ACP countries.
