Our video guest: Mr. Romain Philippe

Our video guest this week is Mr. Romain Philippe . He is Officer in charge of Policy Coherence for Development at the European confederation of Relief and Development NGOs (CONCORD Europe). CONCORD is composed of 25 national associations and 18 international networks representing over 1,600 NGOs. In this interview, Mr. Philippe explains the structure and work of CONCORD Europe with a special emphasis on agriculture and rural development.
CONCORD intervenes in the decision making process of the EU institutions by bringing inputs from its partners based  in developing countries  and by providing expertise on thematic issues such as food security. CONCORD also publishes monitoring reports, in particular Mr. Philippe talks about the Monitoring Report on the Communication of the European Commission ‘Advancing African Agriculture’
This interview is an illustration on how the civil society of both the EU and ACP countries can contribute to the amelioration of EU development policies.
