Our Video guest: Mr Stefano Manservisi, European Commission’s Director-General for Development

Mr Stefano Manservisi has been the European Commission’s Director-General for Development since November 2004. In this capacity, he helps the Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid to formulate the EU’s development co-operation policy. He also oversees the programming of EU development assistance in the 78 partner countries of the EU in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific.

Mr Stefano Manservisi explains to us the European Development Days (EDD) which is a key European platform for discussion and exchange on global challenges in all key areas – governance, climate change, international finance, trade, food security, water, energy, the role of the media and human and social rights. This forum blend a great diversity of political leaders and parliamentarians, international institutions, local authorities, NGOs, business leaders, academics, researchers, media representatives and the young.

This year’s EDD, in Stockholm (22-24 October), falls one month after the G-20 Leaders meeting in Pittsburgh, two weeks after the IMF-World Bank meeting in Istanbul and six weeks before the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. Against this backdrop, the 2009 edition will focus on the global response to the economic downturn and climate change, as well as on the challenges of democracy and development.

CTA's contribution will be: a high-level round table on Global land acquisition (22nd October), the funding of 30 experts form the ACP countries, the organisation of 13 ACP stands in the development village and the support to the training of 15 African rural radio journalists as part of a partnership with the EC and Deutsche Welle.
