In the course of recent weeks, CTA Brussels has reported at some length on the alarming situation in the Sahel. International actors discuss ways to provide better assistance to the region's people, and organizations such as Oxfam stress that addressing the root causes and providing longer-term support are crucial to preventing further crises. Given the significant impact of the current African food crisis, we revisit the points made by Luca Alinovi, Senior economist at FAO, who participated in our Development briefing on "Humanitarian assistance and rural development: responding to new challenges”. Mr. Alinovi addresses long term issues in humanitarian crisis contexts and speaks of ways that may improve Food Security Analysis and Response.

Pastoralism will be at the cor of our next Brussels Briefing. We will discuss the main challenges affecting the pastoralists, especially in the ACP countries, and the opportunities provided by existing continental and regional policy frameworks and processes. It will then focus on sharing good practices and experiences from the field across regions. We will also identify what urgent and concrete policy actions need to be in place to increase support pastoralism.
The Briefing will be fully webstreamed in English and French. To see the programme (revised) to register for the Briefing and to follow the webstream on22 February (from 8h30 a.m. to13.00 p.m. CET) please visit brusselsbriefings.

The EU may withdraw access to its markets for countries that have not signed the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) by 2014, a move that will affect all EAC member states as well as some other Least Developed Countries (LDCs).  According to Bilaterals, trade analysts argue that this situation is "a reflection of the fatigue within the EU".

Given the alarming situation in the Sahel Region, where 12 million people are at risk of hunger, the European Commission has scaled up its humanitarian assistance to €123.5 million. EU Member States, the United States of America, Canada, and Brazil, among other donors, will meet this week in Brussels to find ways to provide better assistance to people in the Sahel countries.
