Last week, we published part one of the CTA Brussels Office interview with HE Roy Mickey Joy, Vanuatu’s ambassador to the EU. In that, he gave us his impressions on the most recent and future developments that are necessary at the ACP Group Level.  In the second part of this interview he delves into the impacts on Vanuatu becoming the 157th member of the WTO.

As we have been announcing, the next Brussels Development Briefing  will  focus on ‘Climate change, agriculture and food security: proven approaches and new investments’.
It will address issues related to agriculture and food security in a changing climate, and how agriculture can increase resilience to climate change effects. In particular, it will: (i) raise awareness in ACP countries on the key challenges posed to agriculture by climate changes; (ii) increase exchange of information and expertise on strategies to develop climate-smart agriculture and proven successes; and (iii) facilitate networking among development partners.
The briefing, wich will be held on 27 September, 2012, will be organized in collaboration with the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).
Around 120 ACP-EU policy-makers and representatives of EU Member States, civil society groups, research networks and development practitioners, and international organizations based in Brussels.

This week, the European Parliament was scheduled to vote on whether to amend Council Regulation (EC) 1528/2007 – a move that could lead to a number of ACP countries losing duty- and quota-free access to European markets. The debate followed a proposal by the European Commission that members of the ACP Group negotiating EPAs with the EU be required to conclude these before 1 January 2014. In favour of the ACP and responding to outspoken discontent within the group, MEPs voted for the 2014 deadline for the ratification of the EPAs to be extended until 2016.
