EU development ministers to discuss situation in Mali

EU Development Ministers, informally meeting in Dublin from 11 to 12 February in Dublin Castle, as part of Ireland’s Presidency of the EU,  will discuss on the topic of aid to Mali, and resilience building in the Horn of Africa, according to an Irish EU Presidency statement.
"There has been good progress in stabilising the security situation in Mali, but it is critical that the provision of humanitarian aid and the political process keep pace. We will discuss how best the EU can support Malian authorities and civilians on the road to recovery," said Joe Costello, Irish Minister for Trade and Development, in press statements.
On Tuesday 12 February, EU Development Ministers will further discuss EU efforts to increase the resilience of vulnerable communities in the Horn of Africa to natural disasters and crises.
"This work is increasingly important as the number and intensity of disasters increases. Major emergencies have occurred every year over the past decade, from the Darfur conflict which started in 2003 to the Horn of Africa food crisis in 2011. As the number of crises increases, the need to plan for them as part of our overall development assistance becomes more critical " said Costello.
