The 21st Brussels Policy Development Briefing will be on ‘Geopolitics of Food‘ and will take place on the 2nd of February 2010 (8h30-13h00) at the Charlemagne Building of the European Commission. Feeding the world is not anymore just a question of increasing agricultural production and trade but a political question. In a globalized world, the complexity of issues involved in the global food system is increasing. The food, fuel and financial crisis, the effects of climate change and global policies have and will have an impact on the food production and future type of agriculture. To discuss the consequences for agriculture in the ACP states, CTA, DG DEVCO of the European Commission the ACP Secretariat, CONCORD, and other partners brings together policy experts and academics in two panels on worldwide food security.

For more information, you can download our press release, a thematic introduction to the event and the programme of the event.

Valentin Zahrnt is an economist at the European Centre for International Political Economy (ECIPE). He researched whether the agricultural subsidies given by the EU are really necessary from a food security perspective. On Wednesday 26 January 2011, Mr Zahrnt presented his findings to MEPs, Commission officials and lobbyists in Brussels.

Projects and programmes financed by the African Union (AU) are at risk, unless alternative sources of funding are proposed by Member States during the forthcoming Ordinary Session to be held in Addis Ababa. For the last two years, the AU Commission has sought to supplement annual contributions by Member States through new finance plans in order to increase funding for its various institutions.
