ACP-EU parliamentary meeting: Great Lakes region and Comoros archipelago

The ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly (JPA) met in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) from 25 to 27 November to debate security in the Great Lakes region and the situation in the Comoros archipelago. The plenary debates were preceded by meetings of the JPA standing committees and the womens’ forum.
The debates also focused on the social and environmental impacts of pastoralism on ACP countries, South-South cooperation and “triangular” cooperation (South-South cooperation with the support of a country in the North) and cooperation between the African Union and the European Union. Members of the European Parliament and their counterparts from national parliaments of African, Caribbean and Pacific states also discussed the fight against female genital mutilation.
The formal sitting of the 26th ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly has been opened by its Co-Presidents Louis Michel (ALDE, BE) and Joyce Laboso (Kenya), in the presence of the Speaker of the House of People's Representatives of Ethiopia Abadula Gemeda Dago and the Prime Minister of Ethiopia Hailemariyam Desalegn.
