Brussels will see EDD12

Brussels will see the European Development Days 2012 (EDD12) in October.  Some of the focus areas of this two-day (October 16th and 17th) event will be sustainable agriculture, food security, resilience, inclusive growth and private sector engagement in international development.
According to an article by DEVEX, the EDD12 takes place at a critical juncture for EU external funding. EU ministers are now debating the regional bloc’s next budget, and some have suggested a cut in aid spending given the eurozone crisis. The European Union and its 27 member states make for the world’s largest donor, providing more than half of all official development assistance.
In an exclusive interview with the international development site, Andris Piebalgs reaffirms why the European Union should keep its promise to meet the internationally agreed-upon aid funding target of 0.7 percent of gross national income by 2015. Notably, he previews what’s in store for delegates at the EDD12 and shares some of the big names in attendance.
