Among the many issues discussed during the course of the last Brussels Development Briefing on Food losses and Food Waste, the post-harvest losses dilemma in Sub-Saharan Africa drew particular attention. Members of the audience and speakers exchanged views of ongoing and prospective measures to reduce losses at the different stages of the value chain, as this could improve the livelihoods of the actors involved.  We recently met with John Orchard, Director of Research at the Natural Resources Institute  (University of Greenwich, United Kingdom), who spoke to us on this topic.

The next Brussels Briefing will take place on 27th September 2012 and will be on the opportunities presented by climate-smart agriculture, or “agriculture that sustainably increases productivity resilience (adaptation), reduces/removes greenhouse gases (mitigation) while enhancing the achievement of national food security and development goals” (FAO).
It will call attention to proven agricultural techniques and innovative practices, such as better weather forecasting, early-warning systems and risk insurance, which can help minimise the adverse effects of climate change faced by farmers. The briefing will highlight the critical issue of innovative ways of financing adaptation to climate change and the need to increase investment in climate-smart technologies.

According to an article by Professor Roman Grynberg, the former director of Economic Governance with the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, on the access of Botswanan beef to EU market,  “declining subsidies and increasing restrictions are forcing the country to think the unthinkable”. Botswana has been dependent on beef exports to the EU and this remains a key element of the country’s international trade policy.

According to a press release by Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, the West African country and the EU are looking forward to concluding their talks on the proposed ECOWAS-EU EPAs. Both pledged their commitment to the EPAs, in line with the Cotonou Agreement, at a political dialogue meeting last week in Accra.
