Updating EPAs to meet today’s global challenges

Sub-Saharan Africa has been hit hard, first by the food crisis, then more recently by the financial and economic crisis; and the continent is now facing the challenges of adapting to climate change. In this rapidly evolving context, African countries continue to negotiate ambitious Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with the European Union. Would the EPAs – including the reforms they may require and the mechanisms they may create – have made any difference to the capacity of ACP governments and producers to respond to these crises? In other words, if these agreements had already been up and running, would they have offered solutions for policy-making in the current economic climate? The recently published electronic book “Updating EPAs to today’s global challenges” attempts to address this issue.
