The next Brussels Development Briefing will be held on 26 June from 8.30 – 13h00 on Food Losses and Food Waste. Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wasted! This briefing wants to address the concerns revolving around global hunger, food security, sustainability and waste recovery. A variety of different actors – farmers, retailers, governments and consumers – involved in the food supply chain contribute to large amounts of global food losses and waste. Several strategies are available for the reduction of food losses and waste. However, these strategies are not always known and much action needs to be taken to reduce losses and waste at global, regional and national scale.
Thus, the objectives of the Briefing are to raise awareness of the causes and impact of food losses and waste in low, medium and high-income countries, increase an exchange of information and expertise relating to strategies and successes in preventing and reducing them and to facilitate networking amongst development partners working in these areas.
You can register online at brusselsbriefings.

Following concerns expressed over water management, MEPs on the environment committee (ENVI) voted in favour of a report aimed at creating an ambitious legislative base to address the EU's long term water challenges.  The report, by Austrian Christian-Democrat Richard Seeber, notably calls for more efficient and sustainable water use in agriculture through the introduction of innovative technologies and practices.

The Commission recently published a Report on the 2011 developments in the areas of immigration and asylum.  The figures of the report appear to support the Commission’s opinion that there must be a move towards a coherent migration policy that is able to respond to short- and long-run challenges. According to the EU Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilia Malmström, the EU needs “to effectively manage [its] external borders, to safeguard free movement within the EU, to provide genuine protection to those in need whilst at the same time providing channels for legal migration and mobility”.
