What does the diaspora’s economy mean for the Caribbean region? Keith Nurse, a renowned economist and creative industries specialist, and director of the Shridath Ramphal Centre for International Trade Law, Policy and Services at the Cave Hill Campus (Barbados) of the University of the West Indies (UWI), answered this and other questions. He spoke to us about some key points of “Forward home”,  a documentary of which he is the executive producer and which is based on 2 years of research. It delves in particular into the impact of the Caribbean diaspora on the region’s economy.

The next Brussels Development Briefing “Addressing Food Waste in Time of Crisis” will be held at the European Commission, Borschette Building, Room 2D on Tuesday 26 June 2012 from 8h30 to 13h00 CET .This briefing wants to address the concerns revolving around global hunger, food security, sustainability and waste recovery.

During the speech of Dacian Cioloş, the European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Europe, in the event “Agriculture the way towards sustainability and inclusiveness G20/Rio de Janeiro”, he took the opportunity to address two key questions: “What is the European Union's vision on sustainable agriculture?”  and “How can we make sustainable agriculture a better contributor to food security and fighting poverty?” .

As smallholder agriculture is a critical lifeline of Swaziland’s majority rural population, the Government of Swaziland and FAO, with funding from the European Union (EU), work together to boost agricultural productivity, while at the same time reversing environmental degradation. The Swaziland Agricultural Development Project (SADP), a 5-years programme with €14.2 million by the EU  and € 341 000 by FAO, and which was established in 2009, revitalises agriculture and contributes to the creation of a vibrant commercial agricultural sector.
