Ivan Hermans is the Deputy Director of the UNFPA Brussels office. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) publishes a State of the World Population report every year. CTA interviewed him at the occasion of the launch of the 2011 report. In the interview, Mr Hermans presents the report's findings for ACP countries and talks about the importance of family planning.

The Ghana government is likely to tell ECOWAS of its plans to go solo on the signing of the Interim Economic Partnership Agreement (IEPA) when Trade Ministers in the sub-region meet in the country later this month. The Trade and Industries Minster, Hannah Tetteh, told the media on Tuesday that the country would have preferred to join other member-countries within ECOWAS to sign the IEPA as a body; however, negotiations on the trade agreement with the European Union has stalled - pushing government to consider its options.

The European Commission (EC) will launch a new Trade and Development Strategy in December 2011 with the objective to give a picture of how the EU can best support developing countries that currently do not benefit from trade, or do so only marginally. The Fair Trade Advocacy Office (FTAO) welcomes the objectives but stresses that for trade to work for the poor, the strategy needs to take into account a wider range of actors which have been forgotten in the current Trade and Development Strategy. EU consumers, local authorities, EU companies and producers in the South all have important roles to play.
